Calacirian was a region of Eldamar near the entrance to the ravine of Calacirya. The name appears in Bilbo's song of Eärendil in Rivendell:
- and seven lights before him sent,
as through the Calacirian
to hidden land forlorn he went.
The Quenya name Calacirian is a simplified ("anglicized") form of Kalakiryandë, derived from Kalakirya.
