Name Edit

Edhel- is a Sindarin elven prefix meaning "elf" and the -ion suffix generally denotes a son, scion, or descendant. Edhelion could therefore have an implied place-name translation of "Descendants of Elves" or "Sons of Elves," though both are rough translations at best. Edhelion being named in Sindarin represents a possible continuity error in itself, as the only plausible time of its founding would have it populated by Ñoldor, the second tribe of Eldar, all of whom originally spoke the Elven dialect of Quenya.

Trivia Edit

  • Edhelion is inspired by Edhelion from LOTRO game, but in game it was region of Third age unlike Calwen Aurellen's version which is in First Age
  • Edhelion is one of two regions known for its vine. Second is Mirkwood.
