cream is ermain (revisited)

ermain = cream (noun) (Some things Google found for "ermain": an uncommon term; user names; a rare usually masculine first name; a rare last name; ermain.cc is a Chinese personal website; a bad misspelling of remain; similar Germain is an uncommon last name and an uncommon usually masculine first name)

Word derivation for "cream" :
Basque = esnegain (milk + top), Finnish = kerma
Miresua = ermain

My previous word for cream was eserma. I'm redoing it so that the word doesn't end in -A.

The word cream doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it appears once in Through the Looking-Glass.
"Crawling at your feet," said the Gnat (Alice drew her feet back in some alarm), "you may observe a Bread-and-Butterfly. Its wings are thin slices of Bread-and-butter, its body is a crust, and its head is a lump of sugar."

"And what does IT live on?"

"Weak tea with cream in it."
