S. Saelon m.

S. Saelon, m.

A young man of Gondor appearing in Tolkien’s aborted sequel to The Lord of the Rings: The New Shadow (PM/409). His name appears to be a combination of sael “wise” and the masculine suffix -on¹.

Conceptual Development: In drafts of the story he was first named Almoth >> Egalmoth >> Arthael >> Saelon (PM/409, 419 note #2).
