Dagmor was the name of the sword that belonged to Beren Erchamion, in the First Age.[1]

HistoryEdit

As a lone outlaw in Dorthonion, Beren carried Dagmor throughout his journey.[1] It is presumably lost after his death.

EtymologyEdit

The name Dagmor may mean "Dark Slayer", from the Sindarin words dag ("slay") and môr ("dark, darkness").[2]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

The sword's name was not mentioned in The Silmarillion; it is only mentioned in the Lay of Leithian in The Lays of Beleriand.
