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.
The name meant 'Starwards', 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).
