silver is hespä

hespä = silver (noun) (metal)
alternate spelling: hespae

Some things Google found for "hespa":
Hespa is an unusual last name. Hespa is user names. In Icelandic hespa means skeins. In astronomy, similar Hesperus can refer to the planet Venus in its appearance as the evening star.

Word derivation for "silver" :
Hungarian = ezüst (which I transliterate to ezüsht)
Finnish = hopea
Samgur = hespä

I considered making this word hestä, but I decided to use the p from the Finnish word. To maintain vocal harmony, I changed the a to ä.
