Q. Culúrien pn. “*Golden Garland”

Q. Culúrien, pn. “*Golden Garland”

Another name for Laurelin (S/38). The initial element is probably a derivative of √KUL “golden-red” (SA/cul), and the second element might be Q. riende “garland”, hence “*Golden Garland”. Hat tip to Lokyt for suggesting the second element to me.

Conceptual Development: The name first appeared as ᴹQ. Kulúrien in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (LR/210).
