ᴱQ. Silindrin pn. “Moon-cauldron”
A Qenya name for the moon in the earliest Lost Tales (LT1/71). It was translated (or described) by Christopher Tolkien as “Moon-cauldron” (LT1A/Silindrin). Its first element is clearly Sil “Moon”, but the meaning of the rest of the name is unclear.
Conceptual Development: This name was first written as Telimpe (LT1/79), a name that was probably derived from the root ᴱ√TELEPE having to do with “silver”, as suggested by Christopher Tolkien (LT1A/Telimpë).
