ᴹQ. Arkimbele loc. “Rivendell”

ᴹQ. Arcimbelë, loc. “Rivendell”
A Quenya name for Imladris(t) (Rivendell) appearing only in the locative form Arkimbelesse “at Rivendell” in linguistic notes from the 1940s (PE22/125). The etymology of the name is unclear, but it may be a combination of arka “narrow” and imbe² “dell” as suggested to me by Lokyt in a Discord conversation from 2021-08-25.
