ᴱQ. Hisildi coll. “Twilight People, Dark Elves”

Name of the Dark Elves that chose not to journey to Valinor in the earliest Lost Tales (LT1/232), apparently an elaboration on híse “dusk” as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Hisilómë). Tolkien considered and rejected a number of alternate names, including: Humarni, Kaliondi, Lómear (LT1/244) and Úvalear (LT1/237). Of these rejected terms, only Lómear has a clear etymology.

See Q. Moriquendi for further discussion.

A name of the Dark Elves in drafts of the earliest Lost Tales, appearing in its plural form Lómearni (LT1/244). In the Qenya Lexicon, the name was glossed “Child of Gloom” derived from the primitive root ᴱ√LOMO (QL/55).
