From Tolkien Gateway

Kelusindi was the name of a river in Sirnúmen, a place in Valinor where the Noldoli were banished, according to the early version of the legendarium in The Book of Lost Tales.[1]

Its source was known as Kapalinda.[1]


The name Kelusindi is in Qenya, being a combination of kelu(më) ("stream; fountain, spring") + sindi ("river").[2]
