Earliest name of S. Crissaegrim from Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (LR/285, 301). In the Etymologies, it was marked as Danian and contained the element Dan. hrassa “precipice” (Ety/KHARÁS), where the older “ch” [x] did not [become [h] because it was not an initial consonant](/w/initial [x] became [h], unvoicing following [l], [r], [w]), and the [[a] was mutated to [e] by the following [i]](/w/[a], [u] became [e], [y] before following [i]) in the suffix -iel. The [a] also appeared unmutated in the shorter form Gochrass. The meanings of the prefix go- and suffix -iel are unclear.
