feminine name. Silverfoot

Sobriquet of Idril, translated “Silver-foot” (S/126). Her name is a combination of celebrin “silver” and the lenited form -dal of tâl “foot” (SA/celeb, tal).

Conceptual Development: In the earliest Lost Tales, this name appeared as G. Talceleb “Silver Feet” (LT2/165, 216). In Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s, Tolkien changed the name to N. Celebrindal “Silver-foot” (SM/143, LR/141), though in The Etymologies it appeared in a variant (lenited) form Gelebrendal with an e replacing the i (Ety/KYELEP).
