Dorwinion

The name is Sindarin meaning "Land of Gwinion", whereas Gwinion itself is a name of a country meaning "Young-land"; from dor and gwain plus the geographical ending -iond. Tolkien commented that the Elvish name in such a remote location is a "testimony to the spread of Sindarin". Before the publication of Parma Eldalamberon 17, it had been suggested by Tolkienists that the name may come from an Avarin or Nandorin tongue. Didier Willis speculated that the element -Winion apparently meant "wine", without any probable origin in any known etymology.
