Sindarin

gwain

adj. young, *new

This word, the cognate of Q. vinya¹, is attested only in the form gwein (PE17/191). As elements of the canonical names Iarwain “Old-young” and Narwain “January, *New-fire”, it clearly should be gwain. Perhaps the form gwein uses the older, Noldorin phonology, as N. gweith >> S. gwaith and N. teith >> S. taith.

neth (pl. nith). A homophone is the noun ”sister, girl”.

Quenya

nessa

young

nessa adj. "young" (NETH), alsoNessa as name of a Valië, the spouse of Tulkas (adopted and adapted from Valarin, or an archaic Elvish formation: WJ:404 vs. 416). Also called Indis, "bride" (NETH, NI1). The fem. name Nessanië (UT:210) would seem to incorporate Nessa's name; the second element could mean "tear" (nië), but since Nessa is not normally associated with sorrow, this #nië is perhaps rather a variant of "female" (compare Tintanië as a variant of Tintallë).
