S. Uilos loc. “Ever-snow”

S. Uilos, loc. “Ever-snow”

Sindarin name for Mount Q. Oiolossë (PE17/26), usually appearing in the fuller name Amon Uilos. It is a combination of ui “ever” and loss “snow”.

Conceptual Development: In The Etymologies from the 1930s, this name first appeared as (rejected) N. Guilos from the root ᴹ√GEY (Ety/GEY), revised to Uiloss from the root ᴹ√EY (Ety/EY) and finally N. Uilos from the root ᴹ√OY¹ (Ety/OY), with essentially the same derivation as its later Sindarin name.
