S. Dor Caranthir loc. “Land of Caranthir”
Conceptual Development: In Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s, this name first appeared as N. Dor Granthir (LR/265), using the earlier form of his name N. Cranthir, undergoing soft mutation according to the earlier rules of Noldorin, in which both nouns and adjectives are lenited in this position, not just adjectives as in Sindarin.
