Hint: He is normally know by a different name; and Nßmo means 'Ordainer, Judge' according to The Silmarillion.
Mandos, the name of the place of his dwelling. He was what Namo says, the Judge.

When Merry first awoke in the Houses of Healing, what were his first words; or what were they about, if you can't remember them verbatim Question Smilie
Merrys' first words were :"Where is the King ?" "And where is ╔owyn ? "This he said to Pippin while he was confused and crying

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Chicken Smilie

No Mellon, I wasn't looking for Merry's first words when he awoke in the chapter entitled 'The Houses of Healing; those words were uttered when he was sitting on a doorstep still in the streets of Minas Tirith, where Pippin found him. The desired answer is Merry's first words expressed when he awoke after being minister to by Aragorn in the actual Houses of Healing after Aragorn had already ministered to Eowyn and Faramir with athelas. Teacher Smilie
Merrys' first words was :"I'm hungry !""What time of the day is it ?"My first answer was
