Teleporno is a Telerin name meaning "Silver-high"[1]

Contents

[edit] Etymology

The name is composed of telepi and orno (Primitive Elvish ornâ "uprising, tall").

[edit] Other versions of the legendarium

Originally, Tolkien intended Sindarin Celeborn to mean "Silver-tree", but the etymology "Silver-tall" appears in Tolkien's latest philological writings[2].

Celeborn, was said in some of the last writings to be a Teler of Valinor named Teleporno, meaning silver-tree. In these later writings, he journeyed from Valinor with Galadriel. Because in these late writings he was a prince of the Teleri, it is possible that he was a son or grandson of Olwë.
