Hello, why does the article say that Noldóran is a Sindarin word? Both Noldo and aran are Quenya words (aran is also a Sindarin word of the same meaning). Compare etymology section at Noldor. It would be really strange for the Noldor of Aman to title their king in an unknown for them language of the Sindar of Beleriand. The Shibboleth of Fëanor doesn't say that the title has been given after his death by the Noldor of Beleriand or later, so I assume Noldóran is Quenya. Sirielle 22:24, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments, Sirielle. I've made some changes to the Finwë article (hopefully for the better!).--Morgan 11:47, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
