Etymology[edit]

From melns (black) +‎ kalns (mountain), following the model of other languages, e.g., Italian Montenegro (< monte (mountain) and negro (black), whence English Montenegro), Russian Черногория (Černogórija) (< чёрный (čórnyj, black) and гора (gorá, mountain)), Albanian Mali i Zi (black mountain), all basically translations of Serbo-Croatian Црна Гора (Crna Gora, Black Mountain), a term that originally referred to Mt. Lovćen, and later, by extension, to the entire region, province, now independent country, of Montenegro.
