Elessar is a Quenya word meaning "elf-stone". It referred to the magical Elfstone, and later to "King Elessar", the royal name of Aragorn II.

[edit] Etymology

The name actually translates as "star-stone" (elen + sar) but for Men the word for "star" usually refers to the Elves.

[edit] Other forms

  • Genitive: elesarno[1]
