N. Amon Carab loc. “Hill of the Hat”

N. Amon Carab, loc. “Hill of the Hat”

An earlier name of Amon Rûdh that appeared in various forms, one of which (Amon Carab) was translated “Hill of the Hat” (WJ/187). It seems to be a combination of amon “hill” and carab “hat”, the second of which is not otherwise attested.
