"There is my home! ... Sharbhund, we called it, before the Elves
changed all the names."
Words of Mîm
From Narn i Chîn Húrin
In Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth
The tall, lonely hill that rose out of the plains south of the Forest of Brethil was known in Elvish as Amon Rûdh, the Bald Hill. To the Petty-dwarves who settled there, and dwelt in the secret halls of Bar-en-Nibin-noeg, it had another, older name. In their own tongue they called the hill Sharbhund.
