A neologism for “shepherd, herdsman” coined by Paul Strack in 2018 specifically for Eldamo, a combination of ᴺS. bam “sheep” and the agental suffix -(r)on, replacing Gnomish words G. mathron and G. mothweg.

G. mathron n. “herd, herdsman, shepherd” (Category: Herdsman)

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “herd, herdsman, shepherd”, an agental form of G. moth “sheep”, with a variant mastir which is probably the feminine form “*shepherdess” (GL/56). The gloss “herd” is reinforced by the fact that Tolkien equated it to G. nethron “herd” (GL/60).
