In Tolkien's writings
- Main article: Taruithorn
Tolkien signed as Arcastar Mondósaresse ("Tolkien in Oxford") in a 1968 letter to the producer of the BBC documentary Tolkien in Oxford. Therefore, Mondósar is the proper Quenya name for "Oxford", probably a compound of mundo ("bull, ox") and root THAR.
