S. Daur m. “Frodo”

S. Daur, m. “Frodo”

A Sindarin name for Frodo, used in the Praises of Cormallen (LotR/953, Let/448). It apparently means “wise” (Tolkien’s gloss is unclear), a derivative from Primitive Elvish ✶dāra (PE17/102). Compare this to Iorhael, a Sindarin translation of the name of Sam’s son Frodo, used in the King’s Letter.
