An old name for the Vala better known as Lórien, referring to his role in the sending of visions and phantasms. This name derives from the Elvish root olo-, meaning a dream vision of an especially vivid and realistic form, such as those created through the Elvish art of karmë. Lórien's brother Mandos had a related name in Nurufantur, though in later references the names Olofantur and Nurufantur appear as Irmo and Námo, respectively.
