The etymology of Celebrindor's name is uncertain. The first element is the Sindarin element ''[[celebrin]]'' which means "silver, silver-like" (in an adjectival sense), but the second bit seems to be ''[[dor]]'' meaning "land, dwelling-place". Perhaps Celebrindor lived in a house which look silver?
