caun pl. conin means "prince, ruler". Related to the Quenya cáno.

Derivative of this word is condir. It is found in names like Fingon, Turgon and perhaps Argonui

caun means "valour"[1]. Perhaps it's related to the above

caun pl. conath also means "outcry, clamor"[2].

Derivative is perhaps naergon
