So, Mamelta continues to elude us?  <Sigh.>

In the meantime I've managed to find a few of the words used as the
aristocratic language of the Trivigauntis.

Trivigaunte Terms
"boraz"   = (in addition to whatever meaning) a family name [Hebrew?]

"karbaj"  = (in addition to unknown meaning) a family name [Arabic],
used for example as a personal name for a racehorse ("El Karbaj")

"marhaba" = hello [Arabic]
