topon. Rock of the Music of Water, (lit.) Singing Stone

The original Quenya name of S. Gondolin, translated “Rock of the Music of Water” (S/125), but more literally “Singing Stone” or “Stone of Music” (PE17/133). It also appeared in the shorter form Ondolin (PE17/29). It is a compound of ondo “stone” and lindë “singing, song” (PE17/29, PM/374, SA/gond).
Conceptual Development: In the very early Gnomish Lexicon from the 1910s, a similar form ᴱQ. Ondolinda “Singing Stone” was given as the Quenya equivalent of G. Gondolin (GL/41).
