Bronze, in my words

bronze coinefra : bronze

The Fennas word for bronze (metal alloy) is efra. Efra is a rare last name. Efra is a unusual feminine first name. Efra is a small mountainous village in Syria.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for bronze is efydd, the Irish word for bronze is umha, and the Breton word for bronze is arem.

The picture shows a 1870 bronze coin from Jersey. Not New Jersey, the British island of Jersey. It has Queen Victoria on the coin.
