The photo above is of the herb borage. The plant’s Latin name, Borago, is thought to be a corruption of corago, meaning ‘I bring heart’, although it may also be derived from the Italian borra or French bourra meaning rough hair or wool, and perhaps referring to the short hairs covering the plant. A third derivation may be the Celtic barrach, meaning ‘man of courage’. Thanks to Christine's website for this info!
