place name. Wine-land

A rejected alternate name of Dorwinion appearing in notes to a draft map for Pauline Baynes from around 1970, glossed “wine-land”. The second element is clearly S. dôr, meaning the first element mil- is probably “wine”. This is rather unusual, in that wine words normally begin with miru- (S. miruvor, Q. miruvórë, Val. mirub, ᴱQ. miru, G. miros), but the “L” is capitalized and quite clear.


dôr“land, land, [N.] region where certain people live, [ᴱN.] country; [G.] people of the land”
