Pouch, in my words + pouches

murse : pouch

The Illunse word for pouch is murse. Murse is an unusual last name. Murse is a slang term for a man purse (man-bag) or male nurse.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word burse (bag, pouch), and the Latin word marsupium (pouch, purse). There are other words in both Old English and Latin which I could have used.

This is a new word.

mursan : pouches

The Illunse word for pouches is mursan. Mursan is a rare last name. Mursan is a place in Uttar Pradesh, India.

Pouches in Latin is marsupia. Pouches in Old English is bursan.
