N. Daedhelos loc. “Shadow of Fear”

A name appearing in the Etymologies from the 1930s variously glossed “Shadow of Abomination”, “Shadow of Fear” or “Shadowy Dread”, a combination of dae¹ “shadow” and the lenited form of delos “abhorrence, detestation, loathing” (Ety/DYEL, DAY; EtyAC/DYEL). In an earlier entry it appeared as Daedeloth “Extreme Horror” (EtyAC/DAƷ), a form that also appeared in the Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s as an early name of S. Ephel Dúath (TI/169). It may be a variant name of N. Dor-Daideloth.
