masculine name. Quickbeam; (lit.) Quick (Lively) Tree

Name of an Ent, translated “Quickbeam” in The Lord of the Rings (LotR/482), but elsewhere said to more literally mean “Quick (Lively) Tree” (PE17/82, RC/762). His name is most likely a combination of bregol “sudden” and galadh “tree”, probably influenced by Nan. galad (assuming the name is not itself Nandorin).

Conceptual Development: His name already N. Bregalad when it first appeared in Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, with the same meaning (TI/419, WR/26).
