N. Lhuien loc.
Noldorin equivalent of ᴹQ. Lórien appearing in The Etymologies from the 1930s (Ety/LOS). It perhaps developed from a primitive form *✶Lōsien, where the intervocalic [s] became [h] and then this [h] vanished after vowels, as opposed to Quenya where the [s] became [r].
See S. Lórien for further discussion.
