'''Teleporno''' was [[Galadriel]]'s consort [[Celeborn, Lord of Lórien|Celeborn]] took his name from the [[Sindarin]] language, but we have a few rare cases of the same name translated into [[High-elven]] (or, strictly, [[Telerin]]) form, as Teleporno. This variation of his name seems to belong to a tradition that wasn't ultimately incorporated into [[The Silmarillion]] (in which Celeborn originated as one of the [[Teleri]], rather than among the [[Sindar]]), and so it is doubtful the name was ever applied directly to the Elf himself.

[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.
