Lobelia

Lobelia is the name of a genus of flowers named after Belgian botanist Matthias de Lobel (or Mathias de l’Obel). I couldn’t find the meaning behind the surname Lobel/L’Obel, but it seems to have originated as a locational name based on the de- prefix; it’s likely the name has a French (or perhaps Dutch) origin.
