The new operating system is named after the North America's "big cat", the cougar, which is sometimes referred to as a "Mountain Lion".  (Source: HD Wallpapers)

nope, it's the other way around, brining iOS features to Mac. All iOS 'features' in Mountain Lion are:

- notification centre - was needed
- reminders - was part of calendar and standalone app makes more sense
- notes as standalone app - is part of email app currently)
- messages - updated iChat client with support for iMessage
- share facility - nice to have this, makes sharing simpler
- twitter integration and flickr and vimeo for that matter, APIs will be available for 3rd party support
- did I forget something?

I really don't see this as OS X is becoming iOS. it's more giving iOS users more familiar interface on Mac and also ability to work/use basic set of apps on both platforms and are synced via iCloud.
