N. Nargil loc.
A pass through the mountains south of Mordor in the draft maps for The Lord of the Rings (TI/309-310). This pass did not appear in the final maps for The Lord of the Rings. The meaning of the name is unclear, though Roman Rausch suggested several possibilities (EE/2.52).
Conceptual Development: ᴱN. Nargil was used as the name of a dirk in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s, replacing the name Loruin (LB/45, 49).
