N. Calendil loc. “Green-tine”
An earlier name for S. Egladil that appeared in Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s along with variant Calennil (TI/268), glossed “Green-tine” or “Green Spit” (TI/268, 288). It seems to be a combination of N. calen “green” and the lenited form of till “horn” also seen in its later name.
See S. Egladil for further discussion.

N. Nelen loc. “Gore, Angle”
Earliest name for Egladil in Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s (TI/242), also appearing in the longer form Nelennas (TI/245). It is probably related to the root ᴹ√NEL from which nelthil “triangle” is derived, as suggested by Roman Rausch (EE/2.29).
