Revision as of 01:26, 12 December 2010 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Urulóki (pron. [ˌuruˈloːki]) is the Quenya name of the fire-drakes, meaning "fire-serpent" (also used as a plural).[1][2][3][4]

It has been suggested that the spelling according to the Quenya style of The Lord of the Rings would be singular urulócë and plural Urulóci.[5]
