S. Eithel Sirion loc. “Well of Sirion”

S. Eithel Sirion, loc. “Well of Sirion”

Source of the river Sirion (S/120) translated “Sirion’s Well” (WJ/182), a combination of eithel “spring, well” and the name Sirion (SA/eithel).

Conceptual Development: In Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s, this name first appeared as N. Eithyl Sirion (SM/311), revised to N. Eithel Sirion (LR/127), both with the same translation “Sirion’s Well”.
