So I'll start with my name, Heather.
It's a noun meaning: low, evergreen shrub. Appeared in 1725 in the compound heather-bell with a spelling alteration influenced by heath of hathir (1335). Also in the place name of Faghadre (1600-35) and found in Old English haeddre of unknown origin.
Etymology is pretty fascinating!
I'm a Scottish shrub!
