A sobriquet of Tinfang appearing in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s (LB/174) and Silmarillion drafts from the early 1930s (SM/115). The name reappeared in The Etymologies from mid-1930s with the gloss “Merry Singer”, but the character did not appear in the Silmarillion drafts from the same period.
