Q. Sorontil (*Sorontild-) [þ] loc. “Eagle-horn”
A mountain by the sea in Númenor which was “the abode of many eagles” (UT/167). Christopher Tolkien translated the name as “Eagle-horn” (UTI/Sorontil), and it is likely a compound of the prefixal form soron- of soron “eagle” and the word tildë “point” also seen in Taniquetil. If so, the stem form of this name was probably Sorontild-.
