The Ettendales were a cold land north of Rivendell, inhabited by Trolls.[1] The region, located within the Ettenmoors, consisted of valleys that extended up into the foothills of the Misty Mountains.[2]

[edit] Etymology

Ettendales was "meant to be a Common Speech (not Elvish) name", containing the "obsolete element eten ('troll, ogre')".[3]
