squirrel is orantxa (revisited)
orantxa = squirrel (animal) (noun) (some things Google found for "orantxa": a very rare term; bad OCR of words in scanned books; similar Arantxa is a Basque feminine first name, notably Spanish former professional tennis player Arantxa Sánchez Vicario)
Word derivation for "squirrel" (animal):
Basque = urtxintxa, Finnish = orava
Miresua = orantxa
My previous Miresua word for squirrel was onartxa. This is a small change, swapped the n and r, to make the word start like the Finnish word, and end like the Basque word. By the way, tx in Miresua, as in Basque, is pronounced like ch.
