Gilthoniel! O Elbereth!

Been wondering what Elbereth MEANS, I found in Nethack (great game that I love playing) there is a brief description from the program notes;

Elbereth comes from J.R.R. Tolkien's writings set in Middle-Earth, particularly The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion; it was the Elves' name for a goddess they particularly revered. A song in her praise proves to have bad effects on Sauron's minions in The Lord of the Rings.
