Q. Lenwë, m.

The Quenya name of the leader of the Nandor (S/54). The meaning of the initial element is unclear, but its final element is the suffix -wë common in ancient names. See the entry for his Nandorin name, Nan. Denweg, for further discussion.

Conceptual Development: In earlier linguistic notes from the 1930s (PE18/24) and Silmarillion revisions from the 1950s-60s (MR/169), his Quenya name was Nano or (ᴹQ.) Nanno.
