Is the Celtic word for ‘short’ related to the Basque and Igbo words for ‘short’?

Let’s take a look:-

Proto-Celtic – *birro- ‎(“short”)

Breton – berr (“short”)

Cornish – berr (“short”)

Welsh – byr (“short”)

Old Irish – berr, gerr (“short”)

Basque – labur, laburrak (“short”)

Igboobere (“short”)

 

Can anybody who reads this post suggest any other examples which might be related to these?
