Kyermë means "prayer" in Quenya.

Etymology

The etymology is not known. The form of the word would suggest a PQ root *KJER and the noun ending -më.

The word is the only one in Quenya that displays the exceptional sound ky. It has been suggested that it is a Númenorean dialect of Quenya or that it is a misreading of hy.
