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.

Etymology

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