Findegil is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Up to now we used 'Ambar'. But without any discussion and 'Imbar' never came up in our source texts used so far.

A quick search gave the following clear statemnet from Myths Transformed; Text II:
There are features in the present text that clearly associate it with
the Commentary on the Athrabeth (see notes 2 and 3 below), among them the use of the name Arda to mean the Solar System; but while the Earth itself is in the Commentary named Imbar it has here the older name Ambar.
So it should be 'Imbar' throught out our whole text. We used it so far only once and in the compound 'Ambarcanta' but it is on the Maps and Diagrams.

Thank you gondowe for catching this!
