Kalórmë (Q, pron. [kaˈloːrme]) was a mountain, the highest peak of the Wall of the Sun in the Land of the Sun. It corresponded to the Taniquetil far in the West of Arda.[1]

Etymology

The name possibly means "summit of light" in the early Qenya version of the Book of the Lost Tales. It can be analyzed as cal- (root KAL) and orme (root ORO).

It is notable that "Kalórmë" violates normal Quenya phonotactics, by signifying a long vowel before a consonant cluster. Normally, this would be written as "Kalormë".

It is also notable that the name is similar to Calormen of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
