Why are pinking shears called pinking shears?

I mean, is "pinking" a name or something?

    "pinking" actually IS a name, meaning something like "nipping."

    As when you nip something in the bud. The word bud, there, is

    significant, since it refers to gardening, where pinking shears

    are used.

  • pinking is derived from the plant called pink, as is the color pink.

    But pinking shears are NOT used for gardening, LOL. Pinking shears are used to cut cloth for sewing. They make a zigzag cut that prevents cut cloth from fraying.
