Inziladûn was the original name of Tar-Palantir, given to him by his father Gimilzôr.

Etymology

The word inziladûn is an Adûnaic word meaning "flower of the west", derived from inzil, "flower", and adûn, "west".

However, as inzil comes first, it is standing in object position; the meaning actually is "West of the Flower".[1]
