Erellont

From Tolkien Gateway

Erellont was one of the three mariners who accompanied Eärendil and Elwing to Aman, the other two being Aerandir and Falathar.[1]

Tolkien never specified the race of the three mariners: while it has been suggested that they were Men,[2] others argue that they were Elves.[3]

Etymology[edit]

The meaning of Erellont is unknown. It has been speculated that the name means "lonely (star) ship" in Sindarin,[note 1] or that the name is "possibly a dialectal Sindarin of the Falas" or even a "combination of [Mannish] and Elvish".[4]

Notes

  1. In that case derived from ereb (+ el) + a possible derivative of LUT-.
