mouse is higu (revisited)

higu = mouse (noun) (Some things Google found for "higu": an uncommon term; user names; Higu's Jump Training is an online rhythm game on osu!; Higu Bagel and Cafe in Tokyo, Japan; Higu Constructions Pty Ltd of New South Wales, Australia; a rare last name; similar Higua is the name of a place in the Dominican Republic)

Word derivation for "mouse" :
Basque = sagu, Finnish = hiiri
Miresua = higu

My previous Miresua word for mouse was sigi. That word was an alphabetic scramble.

The word mouse occurs a numerous of times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

"Would it be of any use, now," thought Alice, "to speak to this mouse? Everything is so out-of-the-way down here, that I should think very likely it can talk: at any rate, there's no harm in trying." So she began: "O Mouse, do you know the way out of this pool? I am very tired of swimming about here, O Mouse!"
