Arakáno was the Quenya father-name of Argon, the fourth child of Fingolfin son of Finwë.

Because Arakáno (or Argon) was killed during the Battle of the Lammoth, he never reached Beleriand and received a true Sindarin name. Argon was later devised for him in the records. It is recorded that this later became a popular name under the Eldar.
