brother is aveni (revisited)

aveniaveni = brother (noun) (some things Google found for "aveni": an uncommon term: a last name than can be Italian in origin; user names; Aveni Cleaners in Massachusetts; an Australian masculine first name; name of a town in Papua New Guinea)

Word derivation for "brother" :
Basque = anaia, Finnish = veli
Miresua = aveni

My previous word for "brother" was "valni". I think having more vowels in my Miresua word better resembles the Basque and Finnish source words.
