lókë is a noun meaning "snake, serpent" in Quenya.[1]

The (Qenya) form lóke (-ī) ("dragon") also appears.[2] In earlier manuscripts appear the forms lókë ("drake")[3] and lōke ("dragon")[4].

It has been suggested that the spelling according to the Quenya style of The Lord of the Rings would be lócë, meaning "dragon, snake, serpent, drake".[5]

Etymology

It is derived from the Elvish root LOK.[2]
