S. Henneth Annûn, loc. “Window of the Sunset”

The falls where the men of Faramir camped, translated “Window of the Sunset” (LotR/0674), a combination of henneth “window” and annûn “sunset” (RC/473).

Conceptual Development: In Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, Tolkien considered a large number of names before settling on N. Henneth Annûn (WR/164).
