Celebrant

Revision as of 00:34, 26 July 2011 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Celebrant (translated as Silverlode) was a stream rising in the eastern Misty Mountains from the Mirrormere in the Dimrill Dale. It then ran through Lothlórien where it was met by the Nimrodel river, and emptied into the Anduin. The Fellowship of the Ring followed this river when they travelled from Moria to Lórien.[1]

Etymology

Celebrant is a Sindarin name, consisting of celeb, "silver" and rant, "course".[2]

The element lode in Silverlode means "course, water-channel".[3]

These names were also a translation of Kibil-nâla in Khuzdul, the language of Dwarves.
