Etymology 1[edit]

orgona

orgona ‎(plural orgonák)

  1. organ (musical instrument)
Declension[edit]

Etymology 2[edit]

Of uncertain origin. The name of the plant is the same as the musical instrument orgona ‎(organ), perhaps because from the hollow stem of the plant one can make pipes and flutes. Its Latin name Syringa originated from Ancient Greek σῦριγξ ‎(sûrinx) which also meant “shepherd's pipe”. The shrub's dialectal name is orgovány which also had an influence on the naming. [1]
