ᴹT. Elulindo m. “?Elwe Singer”

ᴹT. Elulindo m. “?Elwe Singer”
The son of Elwe in a genealogy associated with the early Annals of Beleriand (LR/403). A similar name, Elulind appears in The Etymologies, derived from ᴹ√ƷEL (Ety/ƷEL). The language of the name is unclear. Its final element resembles ᴹQ. lindo “singer”, but its initial element is his father’s name other (?Telerin) name: Elu. At this early stage, Elwe was the brother of Thingol, and ruled over the Telerin in Valinor (SM/264), so perhaps his son’s name was also Telerin.
