aramund

From Tolkien Gateway

Aramund is an Sindarin name said to mean "Kingly bull".[1]

Helge Fauskanger includes the word in his Quenya wordlist, but notes that the form "may not be pure Quenya, because of the final consonant cluster".[2]

Etymology[edit]

As the Elvish element ar(a) is said to mean "high, noble, royal",[3] and an "elvish" word for "bull" is said to be mundo,[4] it is likely that Aramund derives from these two elements (considering its given meaning, "Kingly bull").
