Elessar (Aragorn's royal name), stem *Elessarn-, as in the genitive Elesarno (VT49:28, read *Elessarno?) The literal meaning may seem to be Star-stone rather than Elf-stone – but the Edain sometimes confused elen "star" and elda "elf". Cf. Elendil; see ELF-FRIEND. – As a common noun, elessar or “elf-stone” may signify “beryl” (in the chapter Flight to the Ford in the LotR, Aragorn finds “a single pale-green jewel” and declares: “It is a beryl, an elf-stone”). –LotR:395, 897
