Nameless Land

The land of Sauron

An epithet for the Dark Land occupied intermittently by Sauron during the Second and Third Ages. It was not literally nameless - its name, of course, was Mordor - but the enemies of Sauron often avoided speaking its name aloud. A similar custom held for Sauron himself, who was not usually named by his foes, and is thus referred to as both the Nameless One and the Nameless Enemy.
