The name Emyn Arnen translates as "the hills of Arnen" (cf. emyn). One historian of Gondor claimed that Arnen was likely a word invented by the Númenórean settlers of Gondor, intended to resemble an Elvish tongue (but wrongly mixing Quenya ar- "beside" with Sindarin nen "water"). Other historians derived Arnen from an unattested pre-Númenórean word arn- ("rock"), although this was based on pure guessing.
