úmarth

(Redirected from Umarth)

úmarth means "ill-fate" in Sindarin.[1]

Túrin Turambar in Nargothrond, wished to hide his identity and introduced himself as Agarwaen.[2] He used the name Úmarth to refer to his father Húrin.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Úmarth apparently contains the negative prefix ū[3] + amarth "fate".
