In the Infobox is given the Sindarin name of the Iron Hills: Emyn Engrin. But does Tolkien use this name anywhere? Not in LoTR, afaik, neither does it appear in the Index of the HoME. If it is not extant in Tolkien's texts, it shouldn't be mentioned at all, I suppose. --Tik 19:49, 11 November 2007 (EST)

I can't recall anywhere in which Tolkien specifically uses the term, however if we know what "iron" is in Sindarin, and we know what "hills" is in Sindarin, then we can say with some confidence what "Iron Hills" translates to. It should be made clear that this is nothing more than an educated guess however. --Hyarion 12:51, 12 November 2007 (EST)
