Etymology  Malmgren's source for the name is not known with certainty, although the name appears to be in use as a ancient Greek female name, with for example an inscription with Kanoulia Potamila as the name of a freedwoman from second-century CE Thessalonike. This suggestion assumes 'Kanoulia Potamila' are both given names. A derivation intentionally directly from Greek Potamos (river) is unlikely, as the sabellids first included in the genus were not freshwater species. [details]

Etymology  Malmgren's source for the name is not known with certainty, although the name appears to be in use as a ancient Greek female name, with for example an inscription with Kanoulia Potamila as the name of a freedwoman from second-century CE Thessalonike. This suggestion assumes 'Kanoulia Potamila' are both given names. A derivation intentionally directly from Greek Potamos (river) is unlikely, as the sabellids first included in the genus were not freshwater species. [details]

Grammatical gender Authors have treated Potamilla as feminine, starting with Malmgren. Also the name appears to be a ancient Greek female name. [details]
