G. nâla n. “yellow-lily” (Category: Lily)

A noun appearing as G. nâla “yellow-lily” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, derived from primitive ᴱ✶nalda (GL/59).

Neo-Sindarin: Since there are no later “lily” words in Sindarin, I would retain ᴺS. nala “(yellow) lily” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin, perhaps with an updated etymology based on *nalga.
