A name for the rowan-tree

One of the High-elven names used by Bregalad for the rowans of his home. The trees were destroyed by Orcs, and in his lament for their loss, he named them Orofarnë, and also Lassemista and Carnimírië. The name Orofarnë translates as 'mountain-dwelling', which ties in with the rowan's alternative English name of 'mountain ash'.
