S. Boldog m.
Conceptual Development: The name G. Boldog first appeared in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s (PM/229). In The Etymologies from the 1930s, N. Boldog was glossed “Torment-slayer” and designated an Orc-captain (Ety/NDAK, ÑGWAL); these entries are the source of the derivation given above. The name appeared in some late notes from the 1950s, but not in the Silmarillion revisions from that period (MR/418, 423 note #5).
