2. End Notes

Gilfanon and his House of a Hundred Chimneys, Omar and Salmar all appear in JRRT's The History of Middle-earth I, "Book of Lost Tales I."

Last of all came Omar who is called Amillo, youngest of the great Valar, and he sang songs as he came.

In Valmar too dwelt Noldorin known long ago as Salmar, playing now upon his harps and lyres, now sitting beneath Laurelin and raising sweet music with an instrument of the bow. There sang Amillo joyously to his playing, Amillo who is named Omar, whose voice is the best of all voices, who knoweth all songs in all speeches; but whiles if he sang not to his brother's harp then would he be trilling in the gardens of Orome when after a time Nieliqui, little maiden, danced about its woods.

In Flame of the Desert, Omar remains a discarded Vala, but Salmar becomes a Vanya.

Elmo is also an obscure character in canon, the youngest brother of Olwë and Elwë (Elu Thingol).

Balai -- Telerin word for Valar.
