tower is dorne (revisited)

dornedorne = tower (noun) (some things Google found for "dorne": a common term; a last name, notably American illustrator Albert Dorne; kingdom of Dorne in the A Song of Ice and Fire series books by George R.R. Martin; a unusual first name that can be masculine or feminine; Dorne (aka La Dorne Riviere) is a stream in the Rhône-Alpes region of France; name of a place in Belgium)

Word derivation for "tower" :
Basque = dorre, Finnish = torni
Miresua = dorne

My previous Miresua conlang word for tower was todri. This change was mainly done to start the word with D. But I also like that "the tower" becomes dornea. I considered making this word dorni, but thought that would be pronounced too much like the Finnish word torni.
