S. Mengas Dûr loc. “?Dark Gap in the Way”

⚠️S. Mengas Dûr, loc. “?Dark Gap in the Way”

Rejected precursor to Cabed-en-Aras (WJ/156). The meaning of this name is unclear, but it might be a combination of men² “road, way”, [N.] gas “gap” and dûr “dark”, perhaps meaning “*Dark Gap in the Way” (as suggested by David Salo, GS/384).
