The band's name, Cirith Ungol, is taken from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and means "Pass of the Spider". It was a high pass in the land of Mordor where the monster known as Shelob lurked. The correct way of pronouncing the name Cirith Ungol is kee'reeth oo'ngol but the band pronounced it with a soft c (see'reeth oo'ngol).
