Hello, all. I am not sure if this has already been addressed somewhere, but I could not find such a thread, and so thought I would make one myself.

I was travelling once more through Eriador, and encountering the various Hill-men tribes again, particularly in Angmar. Can anyone comment on the origins of the place names and titles in the Hill-man language? I assume there was no work done on this by the Professor, but is this a case like the Lossoth where there are more-or-less direct translations in a real-world, analogous language? Or were the names picked out of a hat? If this is the case, is there a list somewhere of what these places mean?

The developers historically seem to put a lot of time into making the names just right, and I was just wondering about the Hill-man languages.
