S. Araglas m. “*Royal-joy”

S. Araglas, m. “*Royal-joy”

The 6th chieftain of the Dúnedain (LotR/1038). The initial element of his name is the prefix ar(a)- “noble” and its final element might be [N.] glass “joy” (as suggested by David Salo, GS/341).

Conceptual Development: In the draft of Appendix A of the Lord of the Rings, his name was first given as Arallas, revised to Araglas (PM/211).
