Yôzâyan

The Land of Gift

"Do you not love the Yôzâyan?"
Words of Erendis
from Aldarion and Erendis
in Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth

A name from Adûnaic, the native tongue of the Men of Númenor. It translates as 'Land of Gift', in reference to their homeland, which was given as a reward by the Valar. Adûnaic Yôzâyan is therefore exactly equivalent to Andor, an Elvish name for the island that also translates as 'Land of Gift'.
