ᴱQ. Ailuvin (Ailuving-) f. “Lake Foam”

⚠️ᴱQ. Ailuvin (Ailuving-), f. “Lake Foam”

A Qenya equivalent of G. Elwing, more obviously related to the archaic form of that name G. †Ailwing, appearing in the Gnomish Lexicon from the 1910s (GL/17). Tolkien indicated that its stem form as Ailuving-. Assuming it has the same meaning as its Gnomish equivalent, it is probably a compound of ailo “lake” and some form of winge¹ “foam”. The Quenya form of this name did not appear in later writings.
