Second, in my words

stend : second

The Illunse word for second is stend. Stend is an uncommon last name. Stend means stand in Icelandic. Stend is the name of a city in Norway.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for second óðer (one of two; second; other; something else, alternate, next) which I transliterate to other, and the Latin word for second secundus (next, following; second; secondary / inferior; subordinate).

My word looks more like, and takes more letters from the Latin word.
