Heart, in my words

celtic heartcraon : heart

The Fennas word for heart is craon. Craon is the name of several towns in France. Le Château de Craon is an 18th century French castle. Craon is an unusual last name.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for heart is galon/calon; the Irish word for heart is croi; and the Breton word for heart is kalon.

The graphic shows a Celtic heart soap mold.
