devil is depahun (revisited)

depahun = devil (noun) (some things Google found for "depahun": a very rare term; similar Le Pahun is a very rare last name; similar Pahun is a rare last name; bad OCR of old text documents)

Word derivation for "devil" :
Basque = deabru, Finnish = paholainen
Miresua = depahun

My previous Miresua conlang word for devil was peraulo, which was an alphabetic scramble. I decided to redo this word to start with the letter D, which is unusual in Miresua.

When this word is used as a swearword in Miresua, it'll be a mild one. Such as in "What the devil?".

Quite understandably the word devil does not appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-Glass.
