Ed. Tuor m.

Ed. Tuor m.

Son of Huor and father of Eärendil (S/148). His name was from the language of Atani but adapted into Sindarin (PM/348, 364 note #49).

Conceptual Development: This character was named G. Tuor when he first appeared in the earliest Lost Tales (LT1/48), and kept this name thereafter, though sometimes it appeared in variant forms such as Tûr (LT2/202) or Turlin (SM/5). Christopher Tolkien suggested the earliest version of this name was probably associated with the root ᴱ√TURU “be strong” (LT1A/Tuor). In The Etymologies from the 1930s, N. Tuor was given the meaning “strength-vigor” and derived from primitive ᴹ✶Tūgore (Ety/TUG, GOR). In notes for the Silmarillion revisions from the 1950s-60s Tolkien decided his name was adapted from his native language, as noted above.
