Súlimo, "Lord of the Breath of Arda", was the title and surname given to Manwë[1] the chief of the Valar, master of the airs and lord of birds, especially Eagles. The Elvish root-word sûl that appears in this name literally means 'breath', but is also used in connection with wind and weather. For example, the Elvish name for the hill Weathertop was 'Amon Sûl'.
