Sky, in my words (revised) + skies

haelon : sky

The Illunse word for sky is haelon. Haelon is a rare first name and a rare last name. In Old English similar word hǽlan means to heal, cure, save. Similar Haelen is the name of a place in the Netherlands.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for sky which is heofon (sky, firmament; heaven) and the Latin word for sky which is caelum (the sky, heaven, heavens).

My previous Illunse word for sky was haelom. I decided to end the word in N instead of M.

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

haelonas : skies

The Illunse word for skies (nominative plural) is haelonas.

Skies in Latin is caeli. Skies in Old English is heofenas.

The plural, skies, is new. So is my graphic for sky.
