Commentary
We have picked up those Westron names from the Appendix F to The Lord of the Rings and its drafts published in The Peoples of Middle-earth.

The text is transcribed in tengwar or “letters of Fëanor” according to the general use of the Third Age created by Tolkien. We made use of Johan Winge’s typeface Tengwar Annatar.  Open this mode in Glaemscribe
