Ilk. Elbereth m. “*Valor Star”

Ilk. Elbereth m. “*Valor Star”

An earlier name for S. Elurín (LR/147). It appeared in The Etymologies containing Ilk. bereth “valor”, but both this word and the name were rejected, probably when Tolkien introduced N. Elbereth as a name of Varda (Ety/BER). Its initial element might be el “star”.

See S. Elurín for further discussion.
