Breeish refers to the language of the Breemen in MERP. In J.R.R. Tolkien´s Books the Bree-People have archaic english names, but the place-names in Breeland derive from celtic elements in old english placenames (cornish, welsh or cumbrian).For example:

  • Archet (corn. ar+chet "in (the) wood")
  • Bree (corn. bre "Hill")
  • Chetwood (corn.chet "wood"+engl.wood)
  • Combe (cumbr. cumb "bowl, valley")
  • Crick (wel. crug "heap, stack, mound")
  • Staddle (OE. Staeth "bank, waterside" or wel. ystad "furlong, stadium")


  • personal names (male):

Barley(man),Bill,Bob,Harry,Mat,Ned,Nick,Nob,Rob,Rod,Tom,Will.

  • family names (men):

Butterbur, Ferny, Goatleaf,Greenhand,Heathertoes, Rushlight, Pickthorn, Thistlewool.

  • family names (hobbits):

Appledore,Banks, Brockhouse, Brownlock,Longholes, Mugwort, Sandheaver, Tunnelly, Underhill

Breeish is considered a rural form of Westron with some Iaurdaenael (or rather Mebion Bron) loanwords while the older Brerion or Archaic Breeish was a Mebion Bron dialect of the Iaurdaenael.
