[edit] History

In T.A. 2994 an army of orcs came up the Silverlode and wiped out the colony of Dwarves dwelling in Moria.[1]

Around November T.A. 3018 Elladan and Elrohir, sent by Elrond to a secret errand, passed down the Silverlode into a "strange country" and were the last to return to Rivendell, in December.[2]

The Fellowship of the Ring followed this river when they travelled from Moria to Lothlórien.[2]

[edit] Etymology

Celebrant is a Sindarin name, consisting of celeb, "silver" and rant, "course".[3]

The element lode in Silverlode means "course, water-channel".[4]

These names were also a translation of Kibil-nâla in Khuzdul, the language of Dwarves. An earlier name is also given as Zigilnâd.[5]
