I've been curiously browsing wikipedia today. The word Geneva, besides the city and Canton, is also used to refer to a type of Gin that's made there, and to any other kind of Gin as a generified word.
Based on my "research", gin is named after juniper bushes, which are used in its flavoring.
One might think that there's a casual relationship between the names gin and Geneva, but Wikipedia says that the "Gen" in Geneva comes from a bend in the river in that city.
Is it a coincidence that Geneva sounds similar to gin while also referring to gin?
