Sun, in my words

sunhael : sun

The Fennas word for sun is hael. Hael is a last name. In Welsh hael means generous. Hael is a masculine first name. Hael (or Ha'il) is the name of a city in Saudi Arabia.

The Welsh word for sun is haul; the Breton word for sun is heol. Both these words probably come from Greek. In Greek mythology the sun was personified as Helios.

Sun is a good word for today, the summer solstice.
