S. Manwe m.

S. Manwe, m.

The Sindarin name for Q. Manwë, simply a borrowing of his Quenya name (PE17/189-190, Ety/WEG).

Conceptual Development: In the Gnomish Lexicon from the 1910s, his name was G. Man or G. Manweg (GL/56), but in The Etymologies from the 1930s, Tolkien stated that the Noldor used the Qenya form of his name Manwe, and that his hypothetical Noldorin name **Manw [manu] was not used (Ety/WEG). In his “Words, Phrases and Passages from The Lord of the Rings” from the 1950s-60s, Tolkien coined a Sindarin variant of this name S. Menwi based on name-suffix -wi with the short [a] becoming [e] before [i], but both the suffix and this Sindarin name were rejected (PE17/189), likely restoring S. Manwe (PE17/190).
