Wilderness, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

In Quenya ravanda may mean wilderness. One of the meanings of similar word ráva is wild, untamed.

The Sindarin word for wilderness is rhovan.

Rhovanion or Wilderland is a region of northern Middle-earth. It's the region between the Misty Mountains in the west and the River Celduin in the east.
