North, in my words

northtuald : north

The Fennas word for north is tuald. Tuald is computer users' names.

The words for north in Welsh, Irish and Breton don't seem alike in any way. This surprised me. The word for north in Irish is tuaisceart, the word for north in Welsh is gogledd. It appears that the word for north in Breton, nort or norz, was borrowed from French.
