Maltar

From Tolkien Gateway

Maltar was the name of Aulë's hammer, according to the early version of the legendarium in The Book of Lost Tales.[1] Nothing else is known about it.

Etymology[edit]

The name Maltar is in Qenya. It is probably derived from the roots MALA- ("crush, squeeze, pulp"), and TARA- ("to batter, thud, beat").[1]
