Aravorn's name is [[Sindarin]], and it means "Black King" coming from the prefix ''[[ar|ara-]]'' meaning "royal, king", and ''morn'' (becoming lenited to ''vorn'') meaning "black, dark".

Aravorn's name is [[Sindarin]], though its exact meaning is unclear. The first element is ''[[aran]]'', "king", but the second could be ''[[boron|born]]'', "steadfast", or ''[[morn]]'', "darkness", which both become ''vorn'' through [[lenition]].
