S. Himring loc. “Ever-cold”

S. Himring, loc. “Ever-cold”

A hill where Maedhros built his stronghold, translated “Ever-cold” (S/123). This name appears to be a compound of him¹ “ever” (Ety/KHIM, EtyAC/KHIM) and ring “cold” (Ety/RINGI).

Conceptual Development: This name first appeared in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s as G. Himling of unclear meaning (LB/263) and the form N. Himling also appeared in the Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (SM/108, LR/145) before being revised to N. Himring, at which point it was translated “Ever-cold” for the first time (LR/265).
