In the Middle-earthian name it is not dún but dun, with a short vowel, meaning "dun, brownish". The word itself might be a Brythonic loanword into Old English, but that is disputed, and it is perhaps more likely that both Germanic and Celtic inherited it from Proto-Indo-European.

Yes, I love that word! If it was borrowed from Celtic it must have happened in the Old Germanic era already. But it was probably inherited directly from Proto-Indo-European.

Old English dun(n) seems to originally have meant something like 'bright brown, bright dark', like the fur of healthy beasts. It is presumably the first element in Old English names like Dunstán 'bright dark stone' and Dunhere/Dunnere 'bright dark warrior'. The latter name has a direct cognate in archaic Dutch Donner/Donder, still found in the last name Donners/Donders '(son) of Donner/Donder', not to be confused with donder 'thunder'. Another, archaic Saxon Dutch (first) name with this element is Dunnink 'bright dark one', not to be confused with Dutch dun 'thin'.

But by itself the word was also attested on the mainland as Old Saxon dun, as a gloss for Latin spadix 'chestnut brown' (of horses).

Perhaps I could give it the generic name Dúnland, which is Old English for 'hilly country'. (From Old English dún comes Modern English down, both the noun and the adverb and preposition.)

So that's where Tolkien got the name. Doesn't Dun or Dún also mean something in Brythonnic?

No. It's Gaelic and it references a fort.

Looking good Porky, eagerly awaiting Jims Ice Fields v2 though.

It's my first try at mapping in Warband, so I'm not rushing it.

Very done well Sorkell. Excellent scene for a Norðmenn annexation.

So, now the map is done - if not finished - so I've added it to rotation. We've also successfully reforested "Storskogen", polished "Þórs Lundr", and added the battle map from the Maldon event to rotation.
