Olos (variant spelling olor) is Quenya for "dream, vision / of mind". It is connected to Gandalf's Quenya name Olórin.[1][2][3]

The word derives from the root ÓLOS.[3]

[edit] Other versions of the Legendarium

In Qenya, olor also means "dream", with the variant spelling olórë (used in Olórë Mallë).[4]
