Forgive Me Not Sorry for the title,  I can't correct it any more. 


It has been interesting to realize that one small flower has similar names in English and Russian. It's a Forget Me Not flower. Its name has almost the same meaning in Russian - one that doesn't forget. 

I noticed some similarities before. Like a Bluebell in English and a little bell in Russian. It is quite understandable, because it has a shape of the bell. 

What is the name for Forget Me Not in your language?

Not everywhere, not even amongst Indo-European languages :) I just checked, in Irish forget-me-not is called lus míonla. If I understand correctly, it means something like "gentle herb".

In Spanish, " nomeolvides". Same  meaning

In polish we call this flower "niezapominajka" what can be literally translated as "unforgettable" ;)

It's the same in a couple of languages, so is in Hungarian:nefelejcs. It lacks the object though.

Bluebell is similar too, meaning' bell flower'.
