Lockbearer is the name that Galadriel used of Gimli in her message delivered by Gandalf in the Fangorn Forest, so chosen because Galadriel had given three golden strands of her hair to Gimli as a farewell present (at his request) in Lothlórien (see Farewell to Lórien for details).

" 'To Gimli son of Glóin', she said, 'give his Lady's greeting. Lockbearer, wherever thou goest my thought goes with thee. But have a care to lay thine axe to the right tree!' "
