Iorlas was a man from Gondor.

History

Iorlas was an uncle of Bergil, either Beregond's brother or brother-in-law. When Pippin mentioned to Bergil he was 29 years old, this surprised Bergil, as his uncle Iorlas was also 29, and nigh twice as tall as the Hobbit.[1]

Etymology

Iorlas could either mean "Old Leaf" or "Old Joy" in Sindarin.
