Husband, in my words (revised)

marond : husband

The Illunse word for husband is marond. Marond is an unusual last name. Marond is a rare first name.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for husband which is maritus (matrimonial; husband, married man; lover; mate), and the Old English word for husband which is bónda (a husband, a householder, master of a family).

I'm changing this word because I found a more appropriate Old English word for husband. Earlier I used the Old Engish word ceorl (freeman; man, hero; a (married) man, husband; peasant, rustic). My previous Illunse word for husband was mearl, which was sort of an odd word. I like my new word better.

Here's a link to Husband, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words.
