Nine, in my words

ninenau : nine

The Fennas word for nine is nau. Nau is a last name. Nau means ship in Catalan. NAU is an acronym for Northern Arizona University. Nau is the name of places in Tajikistan, France, Haiti, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Norway.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for nine is naw; the Breton word for nine is nav; and the Irish word for nine is naoi.

My previous Fennas word for nine was nagh.
