Ambarussa

Revision as of 19:10, 18 February 2009 by Þelma (Talk | contribs)

Ambarussa was Nerdanel's mother-name for her twin sons Amrod and Amras. It translates as "top-russet", referring to the color of their hair. After Fëanor their father insisted on giving them each seperate names Nerdanel named Amras Umbarto, the fated, and Fëanor changed it to Ambarto. But the twins each still called the other Ambarussa.
