-nen

most nouns have an instrumental in -nen

-nen instrumental ending (pl. -inen, dual -nten, partitive pl. -línen). Attested in ambartanen, lírinen, lintieryanen, súrinen, parmanen; see ambar (#2), lírë, lintië, súrë, parma. Tolkien noted that "most nouns have an instrumental in -nen" (PE17:62), a wording suggesting that the form of the ending may vary; given the normal development ln > ld, it is possible that it would appear as *-den when added to a noun in -l (*macilden "with a sword").

Uinen

water

Uinen (Uinend-, as in dative Uinenden) fem. name, used of a Maia, spouse of Ossë (UY, NEN). Adopted and adapted from Valarin (WJ:404), though it is also said that it contains -nen "water" (SA:nen); the latter explanation may be folk etymology. In the Etymologies, the name is derived from the same stem (UY) as uilë "long trailing plant, especially seaweed".

Nénar

water

Nénar noun name of a star (or planet), evidently derived from nén "water" (Silm), tentatively identified with Uranus (MR:435)

lintië

swiftness, speed

lintië noun "swiftness, speed" derived from linta; also used as adverb "quickly", nornë lintië "he ran with swiftness", also more explicitly with pronominal suffixes and the instrumental ending -nen: lintieryanen "with his speed" (PE17:58)

lintië

noun/adverb. swiftly, swiftness, speed; *quickly

nenning

place name. water

A river in western Beleriand flowing past the haven of Eglarest (S/120). The meaning of this name is unclear, but it appears to contain nen “water” (SA/nen).

Conceptual Development: In Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s, this river first appeared as Eldor, later revised to Eglor (SM/227). In the Etymologies, the name Eglor was designated Ilkorin and translated “Elf-river” (Ety/ELED), and was given as the basis for the name Ilk. Eglorest (Ety/RIS²), the earlier form of S. Eglarest. In the map revisions for the Silmarillion from the 1950s-60s, Eglor was replaced by S. Eglahir and later still by Nenning (WJ/187), which was the form used in the later Silmarillion narratives (WJ/117).

Note that the name Nenning first appeared in Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s as a rejected name for the rivers N. Crandir “Redway”, which itself was an earlier name for the river Celebrant (RS/433).
