Ed. Huor m.

Ed. Huor m.

Youngest son of Galdor and father of Tuor (S/148). His name was from the language of Atani but adapted into Sindarin (PM/348, 364 note #49).

Conceptual Development: In the earliest Lost Tales, the father of Tuor was first named G. Peleg “axe” (LT2/88, LT2A/Peleg). The name was revised to ᴱN. Fengel in Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s (LB/145). The name only became N. Huor in the Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (SM/24, LR/275), and in The Etymologies was given as a Noldorin name meaning “heart-vigour, courage”, derived from primitive ᴹ✶Khōgore (Ety/KHŌ-N, GOR). In notes for the Silmarillion revisions from the 1950s-60s Tolkien decided his name was adapted from his native language, as noted above.
