Caun

Revision as of 01:49, 22 February 2009 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

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
