Re: A project ~~~~Revising the Fall of Gondolin

I'd go with Laegolas for the &quot;pure Sindarin&quot; that JRRT offers, in the letter quoted by Tar-Elenion.

Laica (LAY) is cognate with S. laeg ~ Helge F. prefers to also honor &quot;older&quot; word laiqua as a viable Quenya word as well. Laiqa shows old &quot;Qenya&quot; orthography.

Tolkien gave the next elements in both High and Grey Elven (S. golas, -olas Q. olassiŽ) as denoting a collection of leaves. Cheers~
