So, does the name Ivrin, or should we say the source of the river Narog, refer to "spring and pools", "fall", or "spings"? Perhaps the issue becomes a little clearer if we look at the following two quotes:
  
 
:"Where once '''the fair pool of Ivrin''' had lain in its great stone basin carved by falling waters, and all about it had been a tree-clad hollow under the hills, now he saw a land defiled and desolate. The trees were burned or uprooted; and the stone-marges of the pool were broken, so that '''the waters of Ivrin''' strayed and wrought a great barren marsh amid the ruin. All now was but a welter of frozen mire, and a reek of decay lay like a foul mist upon the ground." (UT, I Of Tuor)
