N. Eriant f. “Day-bringer”
A name appearing in The Etymologies from the 1930s, the Noldorin equivalent of ᴹQ. Aryante, a combination of the roots ᴹ√AR¹ and ᴹ√ANA¹ (Ety/AR¹). Given its Quenya cognate, it probably developed from a primitive form ✶aryantē [arjantē], where the initial [a] became [e] due to Noldorin i-affection.
