Findis was a Noldorin Elf, the first child and daughter of Finwë, the High King of the Noldor and Indis, his second wife. Findis' name is a combination of the names of her parents.
During the Exile of the Noldor she remained with Indis and her younger brother Finarfin in Valinor, where she apparently dwelt ever since.
Her name seems to be a combination of her parents' names and obviously means "skilled woman". See Finwe#Etymology and Indis#Etymology
