Comment

ilargi from  Proto-Basque *(h)iLe 'moon, month' +‎ argi 'light'. The analysis as hil 'dead' +‎ argi 'light', literally 'light of the dead' is a folk etymology.

hil from Proto-Basque *(h)iLe 'moon, month'; hilabete from hil 'month' +‎ bete 'full, complete', which suggests the original meaning was 'full moon'.

GLD. The word na=ʔaː-y is glossed with the polysemy 'sun / moon / month' in [Kari 1990: 73], but only as 'sun' in [Kari & Buck 1975: 87; Smelcer 2010: 126]. Apparently the meaning 'moon; month' is marginal for na=ʔaː-y.

Comment Also kuukausi - compound of kuu 'moon' +‎ kausi 'period'. Kuu is used for "month" when a month of the year is referred to without naming it, as in viime kuussa "last month"; ensi kuun aikana "within next month". The word kuukausi is more commonly used for a month as a unit of time, but kuu can in some cases be used in that sense as well.
