Field of Cormallen
After returning from the Battle of the Morannon, Aragorn set up his camp on the Fields of Cormallen in T.A. 3019. There, he received Frodo and Sam after their rescue from the wreckage of Mount Doom. They were greeted by many friends, and were praised in the celebration of the victory in the War of the Ring.
The Gondorians likely used the name Cormalthen as in Gondor Sindarin compounds retained the spirant. The spelling Cormallen follows the "proper" Elvish Sindarin, malt ("gold") and ending -en became *mallen, however in Gondor this remained malthen.
