Ciril

From Tolkien Gateway

The river Ciril also spelled Kiril,[1] was counted as third of the Seven Rivers of Gondor.

It arose in an isolated peak south of the White Mountains in the north of the Gondorian region of Lamedon, and flowed south past the city of Calembel until it met the river Ringló, and as part of that river flowed towards Edhellond.[2]

On 9 March T.A. 3019[3] Aragorn led Gimli, Legolas, the Grey Company, and the Oathbreakers across the Ciril on the way to Pelargir.[4]

Etymology[edit]

According to Tolkien, the name Ciril/Kiril could have derived from the root KIR ("cut"), although this is said to be an uncertain etymology.[1]
