"there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same." — Tolkien's Legendarium
This article is non-canon.

Ulmonan was the name (in early versions of the legendarium) of Ulmo's mighty halls, located in the Outer Ocean.[1][note 1]

Etymology

Ulmonan is apparently a Qenya name; the first element is of course Ulmo, while the second element was, according to Christopher Tolkien, never explained by his father.[2]

Notes

  1. The notion of Ulmo's halls only appears in the earliest version of the legendarium, where Tolkien often included more elaborate descriptions of the Valar than in his manuscripts of later years.
