N. Fannor m. “Cloud-lord”
Noldorin equivalent of ᴹQ. Fantur, surname of Mandos and Lórien, derived from the same primitive form ᴹ✶Spanturo (Ety/SPAN, TUR; EtyAC/SPAN). It also appears in its plural form Fennuir, Fennyr (Ety/SPAN, Ety/LEP). In an early (rejected) entry in The Etymologies it was glossed “cloud-lord” (EtyAC/SPAN).
Conceptual Development: In the Gnomish Lexicon from the 1910s, the surname of the Vala-brothers was G. Fanthor (GL/18, 34).
