N. bunn [mb-] n. “snout, nose; cape [of land]” (Category: Nose)

A word appearing as N. bunn “snout, nose, cape” in The Etymologies of the 1930s, derived from primitive ᴹ✶mbundu under the root ᴹ√MBUD “project” (Ety/MBUD).

Neo-Sindarin: In keeping with the principle that nd remained “at the end of fully accented monosyllables” in Sindarin (LotR/1115), I would adapted this word as ᴺS. bund for purposes of Neo-Sindarin. I would use it primarily for the noses of animals, and only metaphorically as a cape of land.
