During his rule, circa 1150, more Periannath (mostly Fallohides and Stoors) passed over the Misty Mountains and entered Eriador and the lands of Arnor. The Stoors settled mainly in Dunland or the Angle.
The etymology of Celepharn's name is unknown. Robert Foster categorizes the name as Sindarin. David Salo proposes that it might be composed of celeb ("silver") + lenited) sarn ("stone"); in this case, ph should not represent f, but two sounds pronounced separately as "celep-harn".
Earlier, Anthony Bryant speculated that the second element is a derivative of the root PHAR ("reach, go all the way, suffice"), thus meaning something like "enough silver" or "sufficient silver".
