Does 'липень' come from the word for "linden tree" (which in principle is *lipa in Proto-Slavic; but I'm not sure if Ukrainian has preserved it) or from something else?

    Yes, ли́пень is the month when linden trees are in bloom. Cf. Polish lipiec, Belarusian лі́пень, Croatian lipanj with the same meaning.

    Isnt the answer wrong? Shouldn't it be "july is my favorite month"?
