      Which is significant for _ud�n_, but Tolkien's acceptance of
      Morris-Jones' eytomogy here doesn't perclude Tolkien's use of the other
      interpretations of _Annwfn_ for other Elvish words, e.g. _ann�n_.

      Indeed it seems very Tolkien to have two words of Elvish that have
      fallen together in meaning in Human languages to explain the various
      interpretations of the Welsh _Annwfn_.
