In German it is called 'Lungenkraut'. In some languages in Eastern Europe, the plant derives its common name from a word of 'honey'. Like in Russian it is known as 'medunitza', while the Polish call it 'miodunka plamista' - both terms meaning 'honey' in the respective languages.
Lungwort is a herb in the Boraginaceae family, so is a relative of borage, comfrey, the alkanets, fragrant manjack and lasora as well as viper’s bugloss among many others. There is another plant called lungwort, (Lobaria pulmonaria) but that is a moss or lichen which is also called oak moss, because it grows on or under oak trees.
