mountain is mordi (revisited)

mordimordi = mountain (noun) (some things Google found for "mordi"; a common term; user names; an unusual last name that can be Nigerian; a masculine first name that can be Hebrew as short for Mordechai; means to bite in Esperanto; Italian conjugations of the verb to bite; name of a town in Russia)

Word derivation for "mountain" :
Basque = mendi, Finnish = vuori
Miresua = mordi

My previous word for mountain was nuodi. A somewhat odd word. I want to include the Finnish UO vowel combination in Miresua, but on reconsideration, not in the word for mountain.
