As revealed in the ''[[The History of Middle-earth]]'' series, the rivername should actually have been spelt ''Taeglin'' ("Boundary River").<ref name="WJ"/> This was a relatively late change which was not adopted into the published ''[[The Silmarillion]]'', which uses the old name, as does ''[[The Children of Húrin]]''.
