family is vamere

vamere = family (noun) (some things Google found for "vamere": an unusual term; a rare last name; a very rare first name; somewhat similar Vermeer is a last name, notably of 17th century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer; similar camere means rooms, chambers in Italian)

Word derivation for "family" :
Basque = familia, Finnish = perhe
Miresua = vamere

This is a new word. If you're wondering where I got the V to build this word, I allow myself to change any rare F that occurs in Basque to V. Miresua doesn't use the letter F.

Note that the Finnish word appears to mean immediate family, as opposed to extended family.

By the way, I've temporarily paused creating numbers due to some word-building issues.

I found one occurrence of the word family in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alice scared a mouse by talking about her cat.
"We won't talk about her any more if you'd rather not."

"We indeed!" cried the Mouse, who was trembling down to the end of his tail. "As if I would talk on such a subject! Our family always HATED cats: nasty, low, vulgar things! Don't let me hear the name again!"
