Rothinzil is the Adûnaic name for Vingilot,[1] the ship in which Eärendil sailed to Valinor, and in which he later sailed the pathways of the sky. By extension, it was also used by the Númenóreans to refer to the brilliant Star of Eärendil in the sky, as in the reference above.

Etymology

The name Rothinzil is an exact translation of the Elvish Vingilot, with both words meaning 'Foam-flower'. The Adûnaic word roth "foam" and inzil "flower".[2]
