Dear all,

The correct name of curry leaves is Murraya  koenigii which refers to  two 18 th century botanists from Sweden Johann Andreas Murray (1740–1791) and the German Johann Gerhard König (1728–1785).

Arent some flowers, and trees named after Indian botanists or foresters? How come native curry leaves are named after two german botanists?

ond finds: The plant genus Koenigia was named for him by Linnaeus, as was a species of curry-leaf tree Murraya koenigii.
 
the parents or the father (here Linnaeus)  decide what name the child should get ( here curry-leaf tree Murraya koenigii.)
 
But I don't know if some flowers, and trees are named after Indian botanists or foresters.
