G. nethron n. “herd” (Category: Herdsman)

A noun appearing as {nestor >>} nethron “herd” in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s, clearly derived from the early root ᴱ√NESE “give to feed; feed, pasture; graze” (QL/66) with sr becoming thr.

Neo-Sindarin: The suffix -(r)on is mostly an agental suffix in later Sindarin, so I would adapt this word as ᴺS. nethor “herd, flock” for purposes of Neo-Sindarin from the Neo-Root ᴺ√NES and primitive *nes-rē; compare [N.] tathor < ᴹ✶tathrē.
