S. Arminas m. “?Noble Tower”

S. Arminas, m. “?Noble Tower”

A Noldorin Elf of Angrod’s people (S/212). His name is apparently a combination of the prefix ar(a)- “noble” and the noun minas “tower”, though it is unclear why the second element was not lenited to *-vinas, as occurred in similar names like Arvegil.
