N. Celion pn. “*Light Elf”

N. Celion, pn. “*Light Elf”

Noldorin form that appeared in a marginal note in The Etymologies from the 1930s alongside a variant Caleledh, replacing a deleted form Calion (EtyAC/KAL). It appears to be a singular Noldorin equivalent ᴹQ. Kalaqendi “*Light Elves”, a combination of ᴹ√KAL “shine” and the masculine suffix -on¹ (though why the i was added is unclear). This might be a precursor to later S. Calben.
