S. Ulfang m.

S. Ulfang, m.

A traitorous Easterling chief (S/157). This name seems to be Sindarin, and therefore was probably not his true name. It seems to be a combination of (N.) ul- “*ugly” and fang “beard”.

Conceptual Development: This character was named N. Ulband when he first appeared in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s, quickly changed to Ulfand (SM/320) and later in the drafts to Ulfang (LR/147). The last of these forms appeared in The Etymologies, which is the source of the derivation given above (Ety/ÚLUG, SPÁNAG).
