S. Glorfinniel, f. “Goldilocks”

Sindarin translation of the name of Sam’s son Goldilocks, appearing in Tolkien’s unpublished epilogue to The Lord of the Rings and in the King’s Letter (SD/126, 129). Her name appears to be a combination of glaur “gold”, find “lock of hair” and the feminine suffix -iel¹.
