A name for the Land of Willows

One of several names used to describe the watery region where the waters of the Narog flowed into Sirion. A forest of willow-trees grew there, from which it took its many names: Nan-tasarion, Tasarinan and (most commonly) Nan-tathren are all Elvish names meaning 'willow valley'.
