The word ''lesbian'' originally referred to an inhabitant of [[Lesbos]], an island in Greece where an ancient Greek lyric poet named [[Sappho]] lived. Some of her poems concerned love between women. Whether Sappho was a lesbian in the modern meaning of the term or a poet who described lesbians is not known. While she did write poems about love between women, there is some dispute as to how her writings can be interpreted. Sappho's literary association with love between women led to the term ''sapphism'' as another term for lesbianism.

Other words used to describe lesbianism over the past 200 years have included ''amor lesbicus'' and ''[[tribadism]]''.

There are many [[slang]] terms for lesbians including ''[[Dyke (slang)|dyke]] and ''bulldyke''. Both of these are almost always regarded as pejorative when used by outsiders, but many within the lesbian and [[queer]] communities have reclaimed their usage.
