The CommonSpeech name for Númenor.
See also: Númenor
|I have often used Westernesse as a translation. This is derived from rare Middle English Westernesse (known to me only in MS. C of King Horn) where the meaning is vague, but may be taken to mean 'Western lands' as distinct from the East inhabited by the Paynim and Saracens.|
|Comments and Annotations|
From the Hobbits' point of view, translated to us in English, "Númenor" is "western isle", where "esse" is an archaic suffix for islands. -- [PhlIp]
