[edit] Etymology for Zigil-nâd?

Ederchil redirected a new lemma for Zigil-nâd here, so I thought I'd better mention the name. If anyone has an etymology for it, the redirected lemma might be regranted its individuality. See also Zirak; from Zigil-nâd ~ Silverlode we may conclude Zigil ~ Silver and thus Zirak ~ spike. -- Mithrennaith 13:37, 20 May 2008 (EDT)

The Zirak/zigil problem is slightly more difficult than that; Tolkien changed his mind several times. I'll do something on the discussion when I have a little more time. -- Ederchil 14:13, 20 May 2008 (EDT)
