Why does cousin translate to leekia?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xPsGoDWh

Because "lēkia" can refer to both an older brother and an older male parallel cousin (a son of your father's brother). The other, more special cousin terms are only for cross cousins (a child of a father's sister or mother's brother), while parallel cousins are treated as siblings, linguistically.
