olive is olibi (revisited)

olibi = olive (noun) (some things Google found for "olibi": an uncommon term; user names; a rare last name; United One (feat. Dynamike & Olibi) is a rap or hip-hop song by Senegalese musicians Bideew Bou Bess; a gaming character name; Olibi S.A. is a small French company; name of a stream in the Republic of the Congo)

Word derivation for "olive" :
Basque = oliba, Finnish = oliivi
Miresua = olibi

My previous Miresua conlang word for olive was oilva. I'm changing this word to not end in -A, and also because the word should really start in OLI, like both the Finnish and Basque words. The previous word was bending, if not breaking, my word construction rules.

The word olive doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.
