fat (adjective) is lova (revisited)

lova = fat (adjective) (Some things Google found for "lova": a very common term; an unusual to uncommon usually feminine first name; an unusual last name; Lova Lova is an 2009 album and song title by French pop/rock band Superbus; 868 Lova is a minor planet or asteroid orbiting the Sun; IKEA Lova (or Löva) children's bed canopy; Lova Weddings of Shanghai; Lova Hotel Spa in Turkey; in French a conjugation of the verb lover which means to coil; in Hungarian lova is the third-person singular possessive of ló which means horse; in Lithuanian similar lóva means bed; name of a village in Italy)

Word derivation for "fat" (adjective) :
Basque = lodi, Finnish = lihava
Miresua = lova

My previous word for fat (adjective) was lida. I like lova better for this word and, in addition, Lova is a rarer first name than Lida.

Regretfully, I've decided to decrease the number of scheduled postings to this blog to four per month. I seriously need to update my dictionary.

I found the word fat once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, in the poem "You Are Old, Father William".
"You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door--
Pray, what is the reason of that?"
