Sindarin 


masculine name. Master of Doom

The Sindarin equivalent of Q. Turambar, the second name of Túrin. It is a compound of S. tûr “mastery, victory” and S. amarth “fate, doom” (Ety/TUR, SA/amarth).

Conceptual development: This name developed from G. Turumart “Conqueror of Fate” in the earliest Lost Tales (LT2/86) to N. Turumarth “Master of Fate” in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s (SM/127, Ety/TUR) and finally S. Turamarth “Master of Doom” in Silmarillion revisions from the 1950s-60s. All forms of the name had essentially the same derivation as given above, though Tolkien vacillated between Tura- and Turu- even in later writings (WJ/315).
