Q. Oarel (Oareld-) pn. “Elf who left Middle Earth for Aman”

Q. Oarel (Oareld-), pn. “Elf who left Middle Earth for Aman”

A term for the Elves who left Middle Earth for Aman, equivalent to Amanyar (WJ/374), a combination of oar “away from” and a suffixal form -el(d) of Elda “Elf”.

This name originally developed from primitive ✶awādelo = ✶awa- + ✶edelō, which became either Oarel or Aurel (WJ/363). The Oarel form was preferred due to its similarity to the preposition oar (WJ/364). Its plural form Oareldi was influenced by the archaic plural †Eldi of Elda (WJ/363). In the Vanyarin dialect, the forms were Oazel and Auzel. In the Telerin branches, only descendants of the Au- forms were used: T. Audel and S. Ódhel (WJ/364).
