Word of the Day: Oromë – ‘araw,’ ‘arum’ (S) the mighty leader of the Elves, spouse of Vána. It means ‘horn-blowing,’ or ‘sound of horns.’
He was a great lord – but when he’s weaker than Tulkas, he could be dreadfully angry especially when Tulkas laughs during sport and war or in front of Melkor (The Silmarillion).
He loved the lands of Middle-earth, and wasn’t exactly pleased to go to Valinor when he went. O. loved the trees and forests of Middle-earth. Even after his ship has sailed, he still continued hunting the forests of Middle-earth, especially during the Sleep of Yavanna. He has a horse named Nahar, and blares the horn (Valaróma) for his great sound.
