Lalaith (First Age late 400s), born Urwen, was the second child of Húrin and Morwen, sister of Túrin Turambar and Nienor.[1]

[edit] History

Urwen was a happy child and her parents gave her the nickname "Laughter" (Lalaith), from the nearby river, Nen Lalaith. She was three years old when she died of a plague sent out from Angband. Her death was especially hard on her older brother Túrin.[2]

[edit] Etymology

Lalaith comes from the Sindarin word lalaith, meaning "laughter". Her birth name, Urwen, means "Fire Maiden" (from ûr = "fire, hot" and gwenn = "maiden").
