S. Firion n. “(Male) Mortal” (Category: Man)

S. Firion, n. “(Male) Mortal” (Category: Man)

A masculine form of Feir “Mortal (Man)”, a combination of that term with the masculine suffix -on (WJ/387).

Conceptual Development: Earlier words for a “male Mortal” include G. idhweg from the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s (GL/50) and ᴱN. fionweg from the Index of Names for The Lay of the Children of Húrin from the early 1920s (PE15/62), both masculinized forms of the contemporaneous words for “Mortal” or “Man (as a species)”.
