Worm means bitterness in Hebrew. It is mentioned in the bible in the Book of Revelation.

It says "The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water – the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter". (Rev 8:10–11)
