Island, in my words (revised) + islands

ineal : island

The Illunse word for island is ineal. Ineal is a rare last name. Ineal is a rare first name.

This word is a mixture of the Latin word for island which is insula (island; apartment house), and the Old English word for island which is eáland (water-land, an island).

My previous word for island was aeslun.

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

ineala : islands

The Illunse word for islands (nominative plural) is ineala. Ineala is a rare first name.

Islands in Latin is insulae. Islands in Old English is eáland (same as the singular).

I didn't have a word for islands, the plural, before.
