belt is gervö

gervögervö = belt (noun) (some things Google found for "gervo": an uncommon term; user names; a rare first name; a rare last name; gervo bv is a garden shed and panel door company in the Netherlands)

Word derivation for "belt":
Basque = gerriko, Finnish = vyö
Miresua = gervö

Notice that the Finnish word contains an ö (o umlaut). I don't see too many of those, so I want to use it in my Miresua word.

All the letters in the Finnish word, vyö, don't even occur in the Basque language, which may be a first. I'm not entirely sure how to pronounce vyö. Both y and ö are vowels.

Finnish doesn't use the letter g, except in borrowed words. Miresua essentially uses the letters used in either Basque or Finnish.
