rabbit is unki (revisited)

unki = rabbit (animal) (noun) (some things Google found for "unki": an uncommon term; Unki mine in Zimbabwe notably produces platinum; a word appearing in Hindi song titles such as "Yeh Dil Aur Unki, Nigaaho Ke Saaye"; an unusual last name; an unusual to rare first name; in Hindi when transliterated unki seems to mean their; name of a place in Zimbabwe)

Word derivation for "rabbit":
Basque = untxi, Finnish = kani
Miresua = unki

My previous Miresua conlang word for rabbit was anuki. I revised this word to start with U, like the Basque word, and also shortened the word.

The word rabbit appears many times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
