돈ation

My wife’s brother is working as a missionary in another country. A few days ago we sent money to him. A moment ago she told me that he said thanks. Our niece/his daughter asked why. For the 돈ation, obviously. (I didn’t say that out loud.)

Korean 돈 (don, money) and Latin donatio (something given) are not even remotely related.
