bird is ivern (revisited)

ivern = bird (Lhaesine pronunciation = IH-VEHRN) (noun) (some things Google found for "ivern": an uncommon term; a last name; user names; Lake Ivern in Oregon; a masculine first name, notably quotable Ivern Ball)

My previous Lhaesine word for "bird" was "irern". I think my new word is slightly easier to pronounce, and I like that it features the seldom used letter "v". It also bears some resemblance to the Latin word for a bird, which is "avis".
