Hill, in my words

brec : hill

The Fennas word for hill is brec. Brec is an unusual last name. In Breton similarly spelled word brec'h means arm.

How did I come up with this word? The word for hill in Welsh is bryn, and hill in Irish is cnoc. Bre is an obsolete term for hill in Breton and Scottish Gaelic.
