Linnæa borealis is the Latin name of the twinflower (flower). It was named after the Swedish botanist Carl Ingemarsson (born on 23th May, 1707), who named himself Carolus Linnæus on his journeys, Linnæus being a Latinisation of the Swedish word lind = 'linden tree' (see LIND). When he was ennobled, his last name was changed again: Carl von Linné. 
In Sweden, every province has got its own 'province-flower' (landskapsblomma), and linnæa borealis is the flower of Småland, which was Linnæus' home landscape.
