During his reign, circa 1150, more Hobbits entered Eriador and the lands of Arnor from Wilderland. Most of these were Fallohides and Stoors (who came over the Redhorn Pass and settled mainly in Dunland and the Angle), joining the Harfoots who had come earlier during the time of Celepharn's father Mallor.
The etymology of Celepharn's name is unknown. The most likely meaning would be "silver rock" from celeb and sarn.[source?] In that case the name should be pronounced as [keˈlep.harn] and not as **[ˈkelefarn].
