Ailinel (Q, pron. [ˈa͡ɪlinel], stem Ailinell-) was the second of the three children of Tar-Meneldur and Almarian of Númenor. Her older brother Aldarion later became King Tar-Aldarion; her younger sister was Almiel.[1] Ailinel married Orchaldor, who was descended from the House of Hador and they had a son named Soronto.[2]

Ailinel's name appears to incorporate one of the Quenya words for "lake", ailin, and the feminine suffix -el.
