Talk:Dor Daidelos

I can't find any reference to this anywhere, except as an occasional early version of the name that would eventually become Dor Daedeloth. The index for The Shaping of Middle-earth mentions it under the entry of Dor Daideloth: "replaced (Dor-)Daidelos", and Dor Daideloth would in turn be replaced by Dor Daedeloth. I don't know where the rest of the information in the article came from. Is this indeed a separate region? (If so, it needs references) Or should it redirect to Dor Daedeloth? --Grace18 16:37, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

Yes, this is the early term for Dor Daedeloth and it should redirect there. "The Region of Everlasting Cold" is fanon coming from nowhere. --LorenzoCB 16:46, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
I checked better and I'm proposing this for deletion: this is simply a variant for "Dor-Daideloth" and whoever made this didn't even get the name properly: "Dor-Daidelos", hyphenated, so we don't need this. --LorenzoCB 17:12, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
The "Region of Everlasting Cold" is a piece of fanon originating from the Atlas of Middle-earth. I've updated its article accordingly. This is still a good candidate for a speedy deletion, since the only place this spelling appears is as an apparent typo in a third-party reference work. --Mord 06:34, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
