Faroese: sunrise

None of the Faroese dictionaries I can find offer a translation for sunrise.

I imagine it's the same as Icelandic sólarupprás, considering the two languages share the same words for sun, rise, and sunset, among other things, but I'd rather not guess. Anybody know for sure?

    Yes, sólarrenning exists in Faroese, but sólarris is much more commonly used. (The latter word also exists in Icelandic, although sólris should be the word of choice for those wishing to avoid the rather long sólarupprás or sólaruppkoma.)
