Olos (variant spelling olor) is Quenya for "dream, vision / of mind". It is connected to Gandalf's Quenya name Olórin.[1]J.R.R. Tolkien, "Words, Phrases and Passages in Various Tongues in The Lord of the Rings", in Parma Eldalamberon XVII (edited by Christopher Gilson), p. 88</ref>[2]

The word derives from the root ÓLOS.[2]
