Sindarin

Círdan

name. Shipwright

An Elf-lord who was a famous ship builder, whose name was translated “Shipwright” (LotR/240). His name is simply círdan “shipbuilder” used as a name (Ety/KIR).
Conceptual Development: In Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, his name was first given as N. Cirdan with a short i (WR/76). His name appeared in the Etymologies as C(e)irdan (Ety/TAN), where the (e) probably indicates its development from N. ceir “ship” (later S. cair).

Balkumagân

name. Shipwright, *Shipbuilder

The 12th ruler of Númenor, whose Quenya name was Tar-Ciryatan “Shipbuilder, Shipwright” (PM/151). The first element of his name is the objective form of balak “ship”. Therefore, the second element magân most likely means “wright, *builder”. This name appears only in a draft list of the kings of Númenor from the early 1950s, and in the terminology of this lexicon falls between the conceptual periods of Middle Adûnaic and Late Adûnaic.
