“Horse” used to be “hros”; so we have the name “Ross” and it’s no longer obvious it has anything to do with horses.
In Town Speech-Plattdytch, the word for "horse" is pronounced /ɹɔs/ and is a cognate of English horse.

I feel like Khemehekis has killed this thread - no offense at all, but every small achievement pales in comparison to this incredible amount of vocabulary that Kankonian has.
