S. Linhir loc. “Fair Stream”
A town in southern Gondor (LotR/875) whose name is translated “Fair Stream” (RC/587), a combination of lind² “fair” and the lenited form of sîr “river”.
Conceptual Development: This name was already N. Linhir when it first appeared in Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s (WR/361).
