S. Bar Bëora loc. “House of Bëor”

S. Bar Bëora, loc. “House of Bëor”

Sindarin for the House (Clan) of Bëor (WJ/230). It is a combination of S. bâr “house, home” and the Edain name Bëor with the old genitive suffix -a “of”. Given the combination of elements, it may be from a different language than Sindarin, perhaps Nandorin or Bëorian.
