'Ever-snow-white', the Mountains of ManwÃ« in Aman.
The most common name among the Eldar for Taniquetil, rendered into Sindarin as Amon Uilos; but according to the Valaquenta it was the uttermost tower of Taniquetil.
The high seat of ManwÃ« and Varda.
A name for the mountain of Taniquetil in the PelÃ³ri, on which stood the high halls of ManwÃ« and Varda. OiolossÃ« was the highest peak in the World, and was always covered with shining snow (hence the name OiolossÃ«, which means 'everlasting whiteness' or, more literally, 'Ever-snow-white'). The Sindarin version of this name, with the same meaning, was Amon Uilos. There is in fact some confusion over the term OiolossÃ«. In most sources, it is simply used as another name for the great mountain Taniquetil, but in Valaquenta, it seems to refer specifically to Taniquetil's uttermost snow-covered peak. This subtle shift suggests that its meaning may have changed slightly at some time in the name's history.
