boat is evoni (revisited)

evonievoni = boat (noun) (some things Google found for "evoni": a rare term; user names; a feminine first name; Evoni fashion doll; an unusual last name)

Word derivation for "boat" :
Basque = ontzi, Finnish = vene
Miresua = evoni

My previous Miresua conlang word for "boat" was "novte", which was a rather odd combination of letters. Having my new word be a feminine first name seems fitting, as boats are often referred to by sailors as she.
