N. Helcharaes loc.
Noldorin equivalent to ᴹQ. Helkarakse appearing in The Etymologies from the 1930s (Ety/KARAK). It is most likely a combination of helch “bitter cold” and a mutated form of caraes “jagged hedge of spikes”, the latter attested only in this name. It was first written as (rejected) elcharaes, and also appeared in the variant from Helcharach (EtyAC/KARAK).
