    Does this "-va" ending come from Uralic or it is an IE borrowing:

    *akwa-
    *akwā-, Proto-Indo-European root meaning "water."

    It forms all or part of: aqua; aqua-; aqua vitae; aqualung; aquamarine; aquanaut; aquarelle; aquarium; Aquarius; aquatic; aquatint; aqueduct; aqueous; aquifer; Aquitaine; eau; Evian; ewer; gouache; island; sewer (n.1) "conduit."

    It is the hypothetical source of/evidence for its existence is provided by: Sanskrit ap "water;" Hittite akwanzi "they drink;" Latin aqua "water, the sea, rain;" Lithuanian uppe "a river;" Old English ea "river," Gothic ahua "river, waters."
    Not to forget the many rivers in Wales and England called Avon and Axe.
