Hey guys, I figured at least someone would know this. I can find references about Rumil's name.

But I need to know what Orophin's name means....I can't find it anywhere! I know that it's close to Thranduil's father's name. Oropher (I think)

But I don't wanna just slap that Orophin's father and Oropher were friends etc. Help?

Just going from the etymologies in The Lost Road, HoME vol V, 'Oro' means 'high' or 'lofty', with 'Pher' given as 'beech tree', so 'High Beech' would sound pretty good for a Silvan or Sindarin Elf.

'Phin' is given as 'skill' or 'nimbleness' so Orophin would read to me as 'Lofty and nimble' or 'high nimbleness' or something along those lines.

The stems given in Lost Road are supposed to be the basic roots that the rest of the languages kind of evolved from, but I think you could use that to argue a good case if you said that was what Orophin's name meant.

Hope that's of some help.

The improvement of the new scheme is done in favor of the citizens. The arrangement of the scheme and top 10 essay writing services is improved in context of the right and good elements for the humans.
