brown is rumare (revisited)

rumare = brown (color) (adjective) (Some things Google found for "rumare": an unusual to uncommon term; in the Elder Scrolls video game Rumare Slaughterfish live in Lake Rumare; an unusual last name; LEGO castle design called Abbey of Saint Rumare; similar Rumara is a place in Papua New Guinea)

Word derivation for "brown" :
Basque = marroi, Finnish = ruskea
Miresua = rumare

My previous Miresua conlang word for brown was rarko. I think the new word is less of an alphabetic scramble, plus it uses the M.

The word brown appears twice in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
The Mouse did not answer, so Alice went on eagerly: "There is such a nice little dog near our house I should like to show you! A little bright-eyed terrier, you know, with oh, such long curly brown hair!"
