Q. Pelóri loc. “Mountain Wall, Fencing Heights”
The Mountains of Aman surrounding the land of the Valar (S/37). This name was translated as “Mountain Wall” (PE17/26) and “fencing or defensive heights” (WJ/403). It seem to be a combination of pelo “boundary (fence)” and the plural of oro “mountain”.
