ᴱQ. Angoronti loc. “Mountains of Iron”

⚠️ᴱQ. Angoronti, loc. “Mountains of Iron”

Qenya name for the Iron Mountains from the Qenya Lexicon and Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa from the 1910s (QL/31, PME/31), a compound of anga “iron” and some variant of oro “hill”, possibly an earlier form of ᴹQ. oron “mountain”. The Quenya form of this name did not appear in Tolkien’s later writings. Based on Angoron(ti), the singular form might be Angoron.
