place name. Poise in Heaven

The name of a planet in Tolkien’s unfinished story “The Notion Club Papers”, translated “Poise in Heaven” (SD/200). Its language is not specified, but it is probably Adûnaic, since its first element minal is the Adûnaic word for “heaven”. If so, its second element zidar must mean “poise”.
