S. Eryn Galen, loc. “Greenwood”
The name of the great eastern forest before it became Mirkwood, translated “Greenwood” (UT/281). This name is a combination of eryn “woods” and the lenited form galen of calen “green”. With its restoration after the War of the Ring, Mirkwood was renamed to Eryn Lasgalen “Wood of Greenleaves”.
