Q. Indis f. “Great Woman”
Conceptual Development: The name Indis appeared in several place in The Etymologies from the 1930s glossed as “Bride” (Ety/I², NDIS, NETH), but there it seems to be a name for Nessa (Ety/NĪ¹). The number and names of the wives of Finwë were unspecified in Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s and 50s (LR/223, MR/175). Indis as the second wife of Finwë did not emerge until late in Tolkien’s writing (WJ/327, 383; PM/344).
