Name. The term “Middle-earth” was not invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. Rather, it comes from Middle English middel-erde, itself a folk-etymology for the Old English word middangeard (geard not meaning ‘Earth’, but rather ‘enclosure’ or ‘place’, thus ‘yard’, with the Old Norse word miðgarðr being a cognate).
