randir[1] (or randír[2]) is a Sindarin word meaning "wandering man, pilgrim"[1] or "wanderer"[2].

[edit] Etymology

In the manuscript "Word, Phrases and Passages", Sindarin randir consists of a derivative of the root RĂNĂ ("wander") + ndir ("man").[1]

In the manuscript "The Rivers and Beacon-hills of Gondor", Sindarin randír derives from the root RAN.[2]

[edit] Examples

[edit] Inspiration

J.R.R. Tolkien may have been inspired by the old, and now obsolete French verb randir, meaning "to walk very fast".
