Pig, in my words

moc : pig

The Fennas word for pig is moc. Moc is an unusual last name. Moc is a rare usually masculine first name. In English moc can be short for moccasin. In Czech and Polish moc means power. In Catalan moc means mucus.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for pig is mochyn, the Irish word for pig is muc, and the Breton word for pig is pemoc'h. Also, the Cornish word for pig is hogh.

I considered making this word moch, but moch means pigs (plural) in Welsh, and moc'h means pigs (plural) in Breton.
