Meaning of a name


#1

I don’t know if this is the right place to put this but I’ll slot it here.

I’d be grateful if anyone knows what the name ‘Adanon’ or perhaps spelt ‘Adonon’ of similar sounding and spelling to that means. I would like to know the meaning of that name.

Thank you for your time and hopefully someone will have the answer.

In my prayer

In the computer game Gothic, apparently the three gods are Adanon, Beliar, and Innos. :slight_smile:

In Tolkien’s languages, adanon (adan+on) is a synonym for “man”.
