Golodhinand is one of the rejected names of Beleriand which J.R.R. Tolkien "jotted down - - - on a page of rough working for the opening of the Lay [of Leithian]" (HoME III, 160) when he was probably searching for a replacement of Broseliand, used so far.

Golodh was later the Sindarin equivalent of Quenya Noldo.

All in all there were eight of these names: Golodhinand, Noldórinan, Geleriand, Bladorinand, Belaurien, Arsiriand, Lassiriand, Ossiriand.
