Ilk. Goldamir pn. “Silmaril, (lit.) *Noldo-jewel”

A Doriathrin name for the Silmarils, a combination of the genitive form of (n)gold “Noldo” and mîr “jewel” (Ety/MIR, ÑGOLOD), hence: “*Noldo-jewel”. It also appeared in the variant form Goldomir, which may hint at the primitive form of the genitive.
