It means "The hill of spies"... and it was raised by Finrod if I remember correctly. However, I don't remember exactly *why* it was called that... something having to do with spies I'm guessing. ;D At least I answered half....

This is the other part of the answer.
"A hill raised by the people of Finrod in the wide plain of Talath Dirnen, a league (approximately three miles) east of the Doors of Nargothrond above the river Narog. Over the years, trees grew on its flanks, but from its clear summit the watchers of Nargothrond could watch the lands about with the clear sight of the Elves, and so the hill got its name, Amon Ethir, meaning 'Hill of Spies'."
