History

Etymology

Morwen means "Dark Maiden" in Sindarin (from môr = "darkness, dark, night" and gwenn = "maiden"). Her surname, Eledhwen, means "Elf-maiden" (from edhel = "Elf" and gwenn = "maiden"), though Tolkien also translates it as "Elfsheen". Both definitions are in reference to her noble bearing.
