Théodred's name is probably taken from the Anglo-Saxon words "þeod" ("folk", "people", "nation") and "ræd" ("counsel").
Little else is known about Théodred, except that he loved Éomer like a brother, and the only person he loved more than Éomer was his father, Théoden.
In Peter Jackson's The Two Towers, the death of Théodred is a major event early in the movie, whereas, in the book, it has all happened by the time we come to Rohan.
