Noldorin form that appeared in a marginal note in the Etymologies from the 1930s along side a variant Celion and an unclear form Celelidh, possibly its plural (EtyAC/KAL).

celion

proper name. light elf

Noldorin form that appeared in a marginal note in the Etymologies from the 1930s along side a variant Caleledh, replacing a deleted form Calion (EtyAC/KAL). It appears to be a singular Noldorin equivalent ᴹQ. Kalaqendi “*Light Elves”, a combination of ᴹ√KAL “shine” and the masculine suffix -on (though why the i was added is unclear). This might be a precursor to later S. Calben.
Variations of the word: Calion.
