Ed. Grithnir m.
Conceptual Development: In the earliest Lost Tales, this character was first named (Gnomish?) Gumlin, revised to Mailrond in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s (LB/119). The character was renamed (Noldorin?) Grithron in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (LR/151), and again to Grithnir in Tolkien’s final versions of Túrin’s tale. The meaning and language of all these names is unclear.
