      As being the other half in this discussion, I always assumed that
      with _Peredhil_ Tolkien meant 'Half-elven' as a union between man
      and elf.

      My question is: what would be the correct name for an
      edain/Maia? Maiar are not elves so that is why I thought the
      use of _Peredhil_ for this union was kind of awkward.

      Beleg Cúthalion to Túrin Turambar, The Silmarillion,
      the Tale of Túrin Turambar.


      [There are no unions of a Maia and a Man in Tolkien's
      mythology, so I doubt he ever coined a term for the issue
      of such a pairing; certainly none appear in the published
      material. -- PHW]
