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. Robert Foster categorizes the name as Sindarin. Tolkien fans have speculated that Celepharn might be composed of celeb ("silver") + a derivative of the root PHAR ("reach, go all the way, suffice"), thus meaning something like "enough silver" or "sufficient silver".
