When, later in his life, he went todwell among the Elves of Nargothrond, they recognised the nobility he hadlearned in Thingol's kingdom, and gave him the name Adanedhel, meaning'Elf-man'.* AdornA river that rose in the western heights of the White Mountains, andflowed roughly northwestward to meet the Isen on the borders ofEnedwaith. It was important as defining the western border of the countryof Rohan.* Adrahil #1|AdrahilA commander of the forces of Gondor against the Wainriders in Third Age1944; called 'of Dol Amroth', and presumably an ancestor of the secondAdrahil.* Adrahil #2|Adrahil
Prince of Dol Amroth, father of Imrahil.-----The twenty-first Prince of Dol Amroth, descended in direct line fromGalador the first Prince.

Thetwilight of dawn they named minuial.* Adûnaic|Adunaic'(Language of the) West'. The native tongue of the Númenóreans, theancestral language of Westron. Evolved from the old tongue used by theMen of the House of Hador.Though the name Adûnaic cannot have been used before the Edain travelledto Númenor at the beginning of the Second Age, the language itself, orsomething very close to it, seems to have been spoken in Beleriand duringthe First Age, at least by the people of the House of Hador. While thereis no mention of its use after the Downfall, it cannot have becomecompletely extinct at this date; it seems likely that the scholars ofGondor and of Arnor would have been familiar with the ancient tongue oftheir ancestors, but in general use Adûnaic was replaced by the Westron(which had developed from it) and Elvish languages.* Adunakhôr|Adunakhor'Lord of the West', name taken by the nineteenth King of Númenor, thefirst to do so in the Adûnaic (Númenórean) tongue; his name in Quenya wasHerunúmen.* Adurant
