Dúnharg

The original form of ‘Dunharrow

An Old English name representing the original form in Rohan of the placename modernised by Tolkien to 'Dunharrow'. The name ultimately comes from Danhaerg, meaning 'hillside temple', a reference to the statues and standing stones erected in ancient times around the site of Dunharrow. The word Dúnharg is itself an anglicisation of the original name used by the Rohirrim, which is not recorded.
