S. Fladrif m. “Skinbark”
An Ent name glossed “Skinbark” (LotR/474). It is unclear what the exact meaning of its elements are, though David Salo suggested that flâd is “skin” and rîf is “bark” (GS/255, 282).
Conceptual Development: In Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, this name first appeared as N. Fladrib, quickly revised to N. Fladrif (TI/412).
