Zimrahin was the wife of Malach Aradan, whom she wedded in F.A. 337 after his return from fourteen years in Hithlum. After marriage she took the Elvish name of Meldis and became the mother of Adanel and Magor.
Meldis is the Sindarin name of Zimrahin, wife of Malach Aradan. The meaning of the name is "friend" (The Etymologies s. v. MEL-, HoME V, 372). The name only occurs in the genealogical table of the 'folk of Marach' (HoME XI, 234).
Other Versions of the Legendarium
In The 'Folk of Marach' family tree (in The War of the Jewels) Zimrhin (and Malach) had a third child. Originally (in version one of the table) there was a note for multiple children that said, "Others not concerned in these Chronicles". In version two of the table this became one name, "Sael..th" that was changed to "Saelon" and then the name and birth-date were struck out.
