"The name Montenegro derives from the Venetian phrase for "black mountain", the black appearance of Mount Lovćen's pine forests inspiring early Venetian conquerors. Crna Gora calques Monte negro in the Serbian language".

In Greek, the country is called Mavro-Vouno (Mαβρο- βouνo) which means:

Mavro = Black
Vouno = Mountain
