    Greek
    Let me add the stilted neuter noun produced in 19th c. Katharevousa Greek that never caught on:
    «Ἀλεξιβρόχιον» [a.le.k͜siˈvrɔ.çi.ɔn] (neut.) < Classical v. «ἀλέξω» ălék͜sō + Classical fem. «βροχή» brŏkʰḗ

    Czech (Prague)
    In Czech:

    deštník (umbrella) < déšť = rain (-ník is a suffix);

    slunečník (parasol of any kind/size, [beach] sunshade) < slunce = sun;

    paraple (brolly) is colloquial, the diminutive paraplíčko was used in the title Paraplíčka ze Cherbourgu (Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, a French movie), it sounds more French and sweet than Deštníky ze Cherbourgu;

    In Latin:

    umbra = shade > umbraculum (a parasol, besides other meanings, e.g. gazebo, tent, marquee);
