"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

Arsiriand is one of the rejected names of Beleriand which J.R.R. Tolkien "jotted down - - - on a page of rough working for the opening of the Lay [of Leithian]"[1] when he was probably searching for a replacement of Broseliand, used so far.

All in all there were eight of these names: Golodhinand, Noldórinan, Geleriand, Bladorinand, Belaurien, Arsiriand, Lassiriand, and Ossiriand.
