Las müsteràns d'ár glheþ

I just found out that the Talossan word for a lost-and-found bureau is büreu d'anfladă. Curious about where the second element comes from, Google could only tell me (in German) that it's a Rumantsch word which means "finding", but only in the religious sense of the Discovery of the True Cross.

KR1 was pretty abstruse at times. Anyone got any funnier stories of Talossan etymology?

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Talossa. Ask me anything.
