Angrod (S, pron. [ˈaŋrod]; Years of the TreesFirst Age 455) was a son of Finarfin and Eärwen and a lord of the Noldor.

He was the elder brother of Galadriel and Aegnor, and the younger brother of Finrod Felagund. Together with Aegnor he held the highlands of Dorthonion against Morgoth. Aegnor and Angrod were both slain in the Dagor Bragollach ("Battle of Sudden Flame").

Etymology

Angrod's father-name was Angaráto (pron. [ˌaŋɡaˈraːto]), meaning "Iron Champion" in Quenya (from anga = "iron" and aráto = "champion"). The name Angrod is the Sindarin form of Angaráto. It is written in the Shibboleth that probably both he and Finrod received the same name Aráto, and this later differentiated to Findaráto and the above. Angrod's epessë was Angamaitë "iron-handed" (from anga + maitë).

Other Versions of the Legendarium

From the earliest writings (for example, the Lay of Leithian) till after the publication of the first edition of The Lord of the Rings Orodreth is given as Angrod and Felagund's brother instead. This was retained in the published Silmarillion, although the changes of their father's name from Finrod to Finarfin and of (Inglor) Felagund's name to Finrod Felagund were adopted there. Also, in the published Silmarillion Gil-galad is the son of Fingon, this was an editorial decision by Christopher Tolkien which he admitted was a mistake.
