New info for me...Numenor was originally Elenna


"Elenna ([eˈlenːa]) or Elenna-nórë (Q, pron. [eˌlenːa-ˈnoːre]) also Andor, the "Land of Gift", was the island on which the realm of Númenor was founded.[2]
The name meant 'Starwards',[3] from the fact that the first Men to inhabit that island came to it by following the light of the Star of Eärendil." http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Elenna

"And they called that land Elenna, which is Starwards; but also Anadûnë, which is Westernesse, Númenórë in the High Eldarin tongue."

Origin of the name Elena:

A cognate of the Greek Helenē (light, torch, bright).
