vanilla is banilja

banilja = vanilla (noun) (some things Google found for "banilja": a very rare term; bad OCR of texts; similar Banileja is a female person from the city of Baní in the Dominican Republic; similar banilla is a flavor consisting of both banana and vanilla; similar banilya means vanilla in Tagalog; similar Russish Banilya (aka Banyliv) is the name of a place in Ukraine)

Word derivation for "vanilla"
Basque = bainila, Finnish = vanilja
Miresua = banilja

I defined the Miresua word for chocolate, so thought I'd do vanilla too. The word vanilla doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, or in Through the Looking-Glass.

The j in Miresua is pronounced like y.
