Just a minor thing to get off my mind.

What do you make of the characters of Hendor and Meleth. More specifically, their names. Meleth appears later as the daughter of Hiril and Enthor of Brethil, so I guess the name is still valid in respect to the later development of Tolkien's languages.

I'm not sure about Hendor. Since I am no expert considering the linguistic studies of Tolkien's legendarium, it would be nice if someone with greater knowledge than me would jump in on the matter.

Not trying to sound too intrusive, simply trying to shed some light on specific matters that I noticed were not discussed before.
