“Omnifarious” has essentially the same definition as “omniferous”: consisting of all sorts or varieties. The earliest use of “omniferous” was in the mid-17th century by Thomas Blount, an English lexicographer and has a slightly different Latin root —”omnifer,” stemming from “omnis,” meaning “all” and “ferre,” meaning “to bear.”
