Gold, in my words

Anglo-Saxon gold coinaor : gold

The Fennas word for gold is aor. Aor is a rare last name. AOR is an acronym for Album-oriented rock which is an American FM radio format.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for gold is aur, the Irish word for gold is ór (noun) or óir (adjective), and the Breton word for gold is aour.
Also, the word for gold for Cornish is owr.
