    It's a Slavic-derived word for a type of marten found in Russia, also used to denote the fur from this animal and the colors black and black-brown. I think of it as belonging to both the animal and color name categories.

    Like many of you, I'm not a fan of many "word names" - but I have a soft spot for several color names and a few nature names. Sage is one color name that makes me cringe, though.
