hithlû

place name. Hithlum

The proper Sindarin name of NS. Hithlum (itself North Sindarin), since in Western Sindarin phonology a primitive [[s|final [m] became a nasalized [v]]], which was then absorbed by the preceding [u] (PE17/133).

Conceptual Development: A form N. Cílu appearing linguistic notes from the 1930s might be an early “true Noldorin” name for Hithlum (PE21/32).

* Hithlum

Mist-shadow

Hithlum is a North Sindarin word, meaning "Mist-shadow" (hith + lum); its Quenya counterpart is Hisilómë (pron. , stem Hisilómi-). Its Sindarin name is said to be Hithlũ.

Tolkien initially marked the word as Noldorin; its second element was cognate to Quenya lumbe.
