Evening, in my words + evenings

avern : evening

The Illunse word for evening is avern. Avern is a last name. Avern is an unusual masculine first name.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for evening which is æfen (which I transliterate to aefen) and the Latin word for evening vesper.

avernas : evenings

The Illunse word for evenings (nominative plural) is avernas. Avernas-le-Bauduin is a city in Belgium. D'Avernas is a rare last name.

Evenings in Latin is vesperi. Evenings in Old English is æfenas.

Sorry I was away for so long. Christmastime was busy around here.
