Worms

in Germany, according to tradition, is so called from the Lindwurm or dragon slain by Siegfried under the linden tree.

Yet more I know of Seigfried that well your your ear may hold.
Beneath the lindeu tree he slew the dragon bold;
Then in its blood he bathed him, which turned to horn his skin,
So now no weapon harms him, as oft hath proven been.

Nibelungen, st. 104.
