Had a flip through this one at the bookstore the other day: A Middle-earth Traveler: Sketches from Bag End to Mordor. The book is illustrated by John Howe, who worked as a production designer on the Peter Jackson films, and offers a spectacular insight into his artistic vision of Middle-earth. Would highly recommend to any Tolkien fans, regardless of whether they prefer the books, the movies, or both.
In the High-Elven tongue, the eighth month of the year was named Úrimë (Urui being its Sindarin equivalent). Now, the root úr— comes from the Quenya word úrë, meaning ‘heat’. From this, we can conclude that Úrimë was the month of hot weather.
July—another month gone by, and with that comes a new Elvish Lesson. So in the High-elven tongue, the seventh month of the year was named Cermië (Cerveth being its Sindarin equivalent). As to the meaning of that name, there are actually surprisingly few references. However, in my research I did discover that one of the meanings of the Quenya root ‘cerm’ is ‘to give’. By this, I’m assuming that Cermië was the month of harvest or plenty (though don’t take my word for it).
As for the above picture, July always reminds me of Lothlórien somehow.
