Hirve.

hirve. (ír.ve) n. A hero. [Âdlantki *hirvé, from Kirumb *hírós, from Greek ἥρως hērōs.]

A couple more words left to fill out this line:

GEN
[It] despatched many brave souls of heroes.

I think that, culturally, hirve might have at least one more meaning in Atlantic. The Greek ἥρως was originally a sort of demigod, or one of the people of the fourth Age of Man, and these myths—if indeed they are myths in Nother—would have some effect on how similar sorts of people might be described. The ἥρως, I mean, might be identified with some specific race of people, perhaps still extant, when borrowed into Kirumb, and that identification might persist to the current day. I still have a lot of the syncretism of Nother to work out, though.
