Father-name

Revision as of 19:48, 21 April 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Father-name was the name given to an elf by his father, carried by the elf for the rest of his/her life. This was usually the primary name for the elf, until he recieved his epessë. An example is the elf Fingolfin, whose Father-name was Noldofinwë. See also Elves, Mother-name, and Epessë.
