S. lach n. “(leaping) flame” (Category: Flame)

S. lach, n. “(leaping) flame” (Category: Flame)
G. blectha “a flame”
G. bleg “a flame”
G. cantha “flame”
N. cûl “flame”
G. tang “flame, flash”

An element meaning “flame” appearing in many names. Christopher Tolkien gave its form as lhach “leaping flame” in the Silmarillion appendix (SA/lhach), but given Lachend “Flame-eyed” (WJ/384) and lacho calad! “flame light!” (UT/65), I think *lach is the likelier Sindarin form, which is the form also suggested by Hiswelókë’s Sindarin Dictionary (HSD).

Conceptual Development: ᴱN. lhacha “flame” appeared in Early Noldorin Word-lists of the 1920s (PE13/148).
