Alyssum doerfleri was named after Ignatz Dörfler (1866–1950), an Austrian botanist who collected extensively in Greece (including Kriti, Samothraki and the N border areas around Mt Voras) in the 1890s, discovering several new species. Alyssum doerfleri is a rare species endemic to mainland Greece and adjacent parts of F. Y. R. Makedonija, growing in crevices and ledges of limestone cliffs at 900–2000 m.
