S. Ereinion m. “Scion of Kings”
Conceptual Development: In Silmarillion revisions from the 1950s-60s, his birth name is first given as Findor, though Tolkien’s writing is difficult to read and the exact form is unclear (WJ/56).

S. Findor m.
An earlier birth name of Gil-galad, though Tolkien’s writing is difficult to read and the exact form is unclear (WJ/56). This name may contain the element fin seen in the Sindarin names of the descendents of Q. Finwë, combined with the suffix -dor “*king, lord”. His later birth name is given as Ereinion (S/154).
