Sunday Rest: mint bush. The word mint meaning herb goes right back to the Greek word minthē. The word meaning a place where coins are made comes from the the Roman Temple of Juno called Monēta, which was used for making coins in ancient Roman times.
The word bush is basically German, but similar words still pop up all over the place, for example in the Italian bosco, which means wood.
