    Anutar - My translation would be "Living Fire" (For my Original Fantasy)

    It popped into my head when I was working on my own original fantasy, but it sounds like something Tolkien himself made.


    Can kindly someone scour the all the languages of Middle-earth and see if this is a word or not? A part of me hopes it's not so I can use it, whilst another wants to see if it is.

    Anyway, thanks and wind keep you.

    Sorry for the terrible grammar, I wrote this a bit too quickly.

    Annatar, “Lord of Gifts”, was a pseudonym or alias used by Sauron in the Second Age while he cozened the Noldor of Eregion. It’s very nearly a homonym to your Anutar. Perhaps you’re “mind’s ear” is remembering that.

    (Sauron may also have used the names Artano, “High Smith”, and Aulendil, “devoted to [friend of] Aulë” (Sauron before his fall was one of the Maiar of Aulë) during his sojourn with the Noldor in Eregion.)

    Andutar is Lord of the West. Anutar itself has no meaning I know of.
