Amrod and Amras, sons of Fëanor by Jenny Dolfen.

Amrod (rod = power) (Years of the TreesFirst Age 575), with his twin brother Amras, was the youngest of the seven Sons of Fëanor. He dwelt in the wide plains of East Beleriand and was known as a great hunter. He died during the attack made by the Sons of Fëanor on the Havens of Sirion.

Etymology

Amrod's father-name was Pityafinwë, or "Little Finwë", as he was the youngest of the House of Finwë. His mother-name was Ambarussa ("top-russet", referring to his hair). His twin Amras shared the same mother-name. The name Amrod is the Sindarin version of the short form of Pityafinwë, Pityo.
