south is elego (revisited)

elegoelego = south (noun) (some things Google found for "elego": an uncommon term; elego Software Solutions GmbH of Germany; a last name that can be Hispanic; Elego Ltd of Bulgaria sells construction materials; character names; user names)

Word derivation for "south" :
Basque = hego, Finnish = etelä
Miresua = elego

I'm modifying this word because the Basque word that I previously used for "south" wasn't entirely correct.  This time I'm using "hego" instead of "hegoalde". In Basque "hegoalde" can mean "south", but it also means "southern area".  The Basque suffix "-alde" means "area, nearness, around".   My previous Miresua conlang word for south was oltede.
