Words that sound weird in other languages

I’ve seen it already on this thread, but the Spanish word for poop is the same in Armenian.

In Armenian, in order to say hurry up, I would say, Շուտ արա, shoot ara, but the hurry part sounds like shoot in English, but with an accent.

Oh, I have one. The Welsh word for carrot is moron, but in English it means a stupid person.

This one isn’t weird, but the similarity is a bit unexpected. In Mandarin, the word for sleepy is kun, 困, and in Armenian, the way to say I am sleepy is kunes tanum eh (Քունըս տանում է). To sleep is kuհnel (քնեւ).
