S. Finduilas f.
Daughter of Orodreth who loved Túrin (S/209). The initial element of her name seems to be fîn “hair” (SA/fin), but the meaning of the rest of her name is unclear. This was also the name of the wife of Denethor (LotR/961).
Conceptual Development: When this character first appeared in the Lays of Beleriand from the 1920s, she was briefly named ᴱN. Findóriel, but was soon renamed ᴱN. Finduilas (LB/81), which remained her name thereafter. This name was also briefly used for the characters Arwen (WR/370) and Galadriel (TI/249).
