Hail, in my words

hagro : hail

The Illunse word for hail (hail-storm) is hagro. Hagro is a rare last name. HAGRO is the name of several companies in The Netherlands.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for hail which is hagol, and the Latin word for hail which is grando.

Tolkien does not have words for hail (hail-storm) in Sindarin or Quenya. Although in Quenya there's words for hail as an interjection, like in Hail Mary.

I've changed this word. My Illunse word for hail is now hagor.
