I grabbed a tiny tiny 3 leaved cutting of this from work last year, and now it's flowering, and it is in the worst soil ever haha, no fertilizer, just coco coir and perlite.

Yes, Plectranthus, possibly Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus) Not really an Ivy or related so I'm not sure where it got it's common name. It was a very popular houseplant back in the 1970's but I haven't seen it around in a long while.

Looks like creeping Charlie, the houseplant version. Not the weed!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Yes, common names can be shared by multiple plants, and individual plants can have multiple common names.
