ᴱQ. Tolli Kuruvar loc. “Magic Isles”

⚠️ᴱQ. Tolli Kuruvar, loc. “Magic Isles”

Islands between Valinor and Middle-earth in a very early map, which Christopher Tolkien equated to the Magic Isles (LT1/64, 84-5). This name is a combination of the plural of tol “island” and a plural adjectival form of kuru “magic, wizardry”, as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Tolli Kuruvar).
