==Etymology==
In a [[Letter 347|letter]] dated [[1972]], [[J.R.R. Tolkien|Tolkien]] gave the name the meaning "Eagle King" (from ''[[aran]]'' "king" and ''[[thoron]]'' "eagle". However, in work written in the late 50's (published in [[Parma Eldalamberon]] 17), Tolkien gave "Steadfast King" (from ''[[aran]]'' "king" and ''thorn'' "steadfast") instead. Which stands is uncertain.
