- adrenaline:  The hormone adrenaline is secreted by glands just above the kidneys. From their position these are called the ‘adrenal glands’ , a term based on Latin rēnes ‘kidney’, which has also given English renal  and (via Old French) the now obsolete reins ‘kidneys’ . The discovery of adrenaline and the coining of its name are both disputed: they may have been the work of Dr Jokichi Takamine or of Dr Norton L. Wilson.
