Q. Cuiviénen, loc. “Water of Awakening”

The lake where the Elves first awoke (S/48), a compound of cuivië “awakening” and nén “water” (SA/cuivië, nen).

Conceptual Development: In the earliest Lost Tales, the name appeared as a plural: ᴱQ. Koivie-néni “Waters of Awakening” (LT1/85). In The Lays of Beleriand, the name was changed to singular ᴱQ. Cuiviénen (LB/23). It keep this form in most later writings, sometimes written with a “C” and sometimes with a “K”, as in ᴹQ. Kuiviénen (LR/168, Ety/KUY).
