Though we know the names of Lindórië's brother Eärendur, and daughter Inzilbêth, the name of her husband is harder to discover with certainty. A brief hint in [[Unfinished Tales]] suggests that his name may have been [[Gimilzagar]], but (as [[Christopher Tolkien]] observes) [[Gimilzagar]] was the younger son of [[Tar-Calmacil]], who lived at least three generations earlier, so this identity seems doubtful.
