Qenya 


proper name. Vala-king

Title of the nine great male Valar appearing in The Etymologies from the 1930s as a combination of Vala and tar- “king” (Ety/BAL, TĀ). Its (ᴹQ) genitive and plural forms Valatáren and Valatári indictate that its stem form is Valatár-. In Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, Tolkien consider this as a name for Aragorn’s father (TI/363).
