§ Methen Amon >> Methendol >> Methedras (TI:391,404)
This is the name of the last great peak of the Misty Mountains; Methedras also in LotRIII, ch.2.
The first two forms include N. methen ’end, final’ (MET-, VT45:34) and amon ’hill’ (AM2-) or dôl ’head’ (NDOL-) or dol ’head, hill’ (RC:433), ’head; often applied to hills and mountains’ (Silm.index). Interestingly, the adjective is in preceding position in Methen Amon.
Methedras may include the noun methed ’end’, as in Methed-en-Glad ’End of the Wood’ (UT:452), but an assimilation of methen, -nr- > -ðr- also seems possible (compare Caradras above (1.10)).
