I have a question for experts in English language history. If Old
English had acquired a loan-word /bunty/, what should we expect as
the outcome in later English? Bounty /baunti/?

I am thinking of Bunty as an old name for my conworld, from Suraetua
bun = copper + ty = land. If a land north of Scotland later were
known as Bountyland, it might attract a lot of immigration, I guess.
