silver is holar (revisited)

holarholar = silver (metal, color) (noun) (some things Google found for "holar"; an uncommon term; Hólar is a small historic community in northern Iceland, site of Hólar University College; a last name that can be Czech; part of a the name of a computer virus; a caste in Maharashtra state in India; a town in the Faroe islands)

Word derivation for "silver" (metal, color):
Basque = zilar, Finnish = hopea,
Miresua = holar

My previous Miresua word for "silver" was "lohia", which ended in a vowel combination (ia) which I'm not sure I'll be using in this conlang. My new word is a more straightforward combination of letters from the Basque and Finnish words.
