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