S. Morwen f. “Dark Maiden”
Conceptual Development: In draft notes from the 1910s she was first called ᴱQ. Tiranne (LT2/139), but the earliest Lost Tales themselves, this character was named G. Mavwin (LT2/70). In Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s, her name was revised first to ᴱN. Morwin (LB/22) and then Morwen (LB/104). Her name was N. Morwen in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (SM/23, LR/276). The name Morwen also appeared in The Etymologies (Ety/MOR).
