Elanor (flower)

Revision as of 17:56, 9 July 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Elanor was a golden, star-shaped flower that grew in abundance in the forest of Lórien. Sam Gamgee thought highly of the flower and, at Frodo's suggestion, named his eldest daughter, Elanor Gardner, from it.

The word elanor means "Sun-star" in Sindarin (from êl = "star" and anor = "Sun").
