Nurn and Nūrnen


In Reply To
About Khand I guess it does not need to be Sindarin, but if it is it probably has some meaning like Harad or Rhun.

If it is not maybe it has some connecton with the name Khamūl which at least share the same spelling.


Khand might be a word in a language of the Easterlings. Similarly, the name Khamūl seems to have a Rhūnic origin.

Unfinished Tales indicates that Nśrnen (as in the Sea of Nśrnen) is Sindarin for 'sad-water'. That suggests that Nurn can be ascribed the meaning of 'sad' or 'land of sadness' in Sindarin.

Lithlad in the east of Mordor is Sindarin for 'ash-plain'.
