cold is holmä (revisited)

holmä = cold (adjective) (some things Google found for "holma" and "holmä": a common term; Holma is an uncommon last name; Nina Holma Photography of Sweden; HOLMA AG of Switzerland produces laser and plasma cutting consumables; similar Holmäng is a rare last name; Holma is an extinct Afro-Asiatic language formerly spoken in Nigeria; similar holme means "small island" in Swedish; Holma is the name of places in Sweden, Finland and Nigeria)

Word derivation for "cold" :
Basque = hotz, Finnish = kylmä
Miresua = holmä

I'm redoing this word, again. My previous word for cold was hyltä, which wasn't a bad word, but I kept thinking it was the word for hot instead of cold. The Basque word even looks like the English word hot.
