N. Duil Rewinion loc. “Hills of the Hunters”
Earliest name of Taur-en-Faroth in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (SM/225). Its seems to be a combination of the plural of dôl “hill” and the form rewinion “of the hunters”, apparently a genitive plural formation, possibly related to N. rhui “hunt” from the root ᴹ√ROY¹ “chase” or perhap G. raust “hunt” from the root ᴱ√RAVA.
