S. Findegil m. “King’s Writer”

S. Findegil, m. “King’s Writer”

A scribe who worked on the Red Book in the Fourth Age, described as the “King’s Writer” (LotR/14). It seems likely that the second element of his name is the lenited form of tegil “pen”, but the meaning of the initial element is unclear. David Salo suggested it might be find “hair” (GS/349).
