S. Huan m. “Great Dog, Hound”
The great hound who helped Beren and Lúthien against the forces of Morgoth (S/142). His name is derived from the same primitive form ᴹ✶khugan as ᴹQ. huan “hound” (Ety/KHUGAN). Given that he was originally a Valinorian hound, it is possible his Sindarin name is simply adopted from Quenya.
Conceptual Development: The name G. Huan appeared in the earliest Lost Tales (LT2/21) and remained constant through all Tolkien’s later writing. The name N. Huan appeared in The Etymologies from the 1930s, which is the source of the derivation given above (Ety/KHUGAN).
