white is zulko (revisited)

zulko = white (color) (adjective) (Some things Google found for "zulko": an unusual term; user names; a rare last name that can be Polish or Slovak; gaming character names; similar Olympus camera Zuiko lenses; similar Zulkovo is another name for the village of Slavyani in Bulgaria)

Word derivation for "white" :
Basque = zuri, Finnish = valkoinen (valko)
Miresua = zulko

My previous Miresua conlang word for white was zulki. This is a small change. I'm changing the final vowel to the more unusual -O. This is to make the word stand out more. When forming the word, I dropped the adjective forming suffix -INEN from the Finnish source word.

Of course, the word white appears many times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
"...when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her."
