S. Gladuial loc. “*Twilight Wood”
Another name for Nan Elmoth appearing on the Silmarillion map from the 1950s (WJ/183, 188 note #48). Christopher Tolkien stated in his notes that he could not find this name anywhere else in his father’s writings, but Christopher apparently forgot that it had appeared as a rejected name in “The Lay of Leithian Recommenced” from the same period, revised to Gilammoth and finally to Nan Elmoth (LB/349). The name appears to be a combination of glad “wood” and uial “twilight”.
