Nen Lalaith was a stream in Dor-lómin.

It came from under the Amon Darthir and flowed past the house of Húrin in southeastern Dor-lómin.[1][2] According to The Atlas of Middle-earth, it was just over twenty-five miles in length and continued flowing northwestward towards the central part of Dor-lómin.[3]


Nen Lalaith was bridged during Fingon's rule as High King of the Ñoldor in Hithlum. In Túrin's childhood, he could recall seeing the High King for the first time, when he and his lords crossed it clad in glittering silver and white.[4][2] The stream was best known for being the name (Lalaith) that the household of Húrin called the young daughter of Húrin and sister of Túrin, Urwen or better known as 'Lalaith'.[2]


Nen Lalaith was Sindarin for 'Water Laughter'[5][6].
