|Location||Dor-lómin below Amon Darthir|
Nen Lalaith was a babbling stream that rose under the mountain of Amon Darthir in the Mountains of Shadow, and flowed north-westwards out onto the shaded plains of Dor-lómin. There, it trickled past the house of Húrin, and was said to have given its name to his ill-fated young daughter, Lalaith.
Nen Lalaith means "Water of Laughter" in Sindarin, from nen ("river, water") and lalaith ("laughter").
