masculine name. dan

In Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s, Dan was the leader of the Danians when they turned back from the March and was the source of their name (LR/175, 215). In the Etymologies, this name was derived from the Danian-only root ᴹ√DAN which Tolkien suggested may be related to ᴹ√NDAN “back” (Ety/DAN). This name sometimes appeared with a long â: Dân (LR/215).
Variations of the word: Dan, Dân.
