N. Ethrenn loc. “Outer Lands, East”
A rejected Noldorin name for Middle Earth appearing in The Etymologies from the 1930s, the Noldorin equivalent of ᴹQ. Entarda with the meaning “Outer Lands” (EtyAC/EN). It developed from a primitive form ᴹ✶Ēntrende, where [t] became a spirant after the [n], and later the [n] vanished before the spirantal cluster.
