§ Faragon >> Orondil (WR:281,288)
These are passing names for the father of the stewart Mardil, later Vorondil (LotR App.A).
Faragon is apparently formed with the same prefix fara- as in Faramir. It is probably from SPAR- ’hunt, pursue’ (whence N. faras ’hunting, feredir ’hunter’), since Faragon father of Mardil hunted the wild oxen of Araw [= Oromë] in the far fields of Rhûn. The horn which Boromir bore descends from him. The suffix -gon < N. caun ’valour’ (KAN-) appears in many other names.
Orondil is Quenya and seems to mean *’lover of mountains’, with Q. oron ’mountain’ (ÓROT-) and (-(n)dil which implies ’devotion’, ’disinterested love’ (Silm.index) and is usually translated as ’lover’ (UT:401, NIL-, NDIL-).
