uura : mountain

The Tarijan word for mountain is uura. Uura is a rare last name, notably Japanese pop-rock singer Saeka Uura.

International locations:
Uura is a village on the Kola Peninsula in northwestern Russia. Uura is also the name of places in Finland and Solomon Islands.

How I came up with this word:
Uura is a mixture of the transliterated word for mountain in Russian which is gora (гора), and the transliterated word for mountain in Mongolian which is uul (уул).

In my other conlangs:
The Miresua word for mountain is mordi.
The Lhaesine word for mountain is rihas.
