Deer, in my words

carif : deer

The Fennas word for deer is carif. Carif is a rare last name. CARIF stands for Centre d'Animation, de Ressources et d'Information sur la Formation (French: Resource and Information Training Activity Center). Carif is the name of a place in Somalia.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for deer is carw, the Irish word for deer is fia, the Breton word for deer is karv, and the Cornish word for deer is carow.

My Fennas word is notably similar to the French word for deer, cerf.
