Thorn, in my words + thorns

tirna : thorn

The Illunse word for thorn is tirna. Tirna is an unusual usually feminine first name. Tirna is rare last name. Tirna is the name of places in Slovenia, Mali and India.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for thorn, þorn (thorn, thorn-bush, name of the rune for þ) (which I transliterate to thorn), and the Latin word for thorn, spina (thorn, spine, prickle).

This is a new word.

tirnae : thorn

The Illunse word for thorns (nominative plural) is tirnae. Tirnae is a very rare last name.

Thorns in Latin is spinae. Thorns in Old English is þornas (which I transliterate to thornas).
