Etymology edit

From Proto-Mongolic *hula (red) +‎ *-xan. The first element can also be compared to Proto-Turkic *āl (red, scarlet), Proto-Tungusic *pula (red). (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) The suffix -xan also can be seen in various colour names. Creates a new noun from a noun, as in Proto-Mongolic *temexen.
