"a complete consistency [...] is not to be looked for, and could only be achieved, if at all, at heavy and needless cost." — Christopher Tolkien
This article's canonicity is disputed.

The Lothlim was, according to the The Book of Lost Tales, the name for the exiles of Gondolin who dwelt at the Mouths of the Sirion. It means "People of the Flower".[1]
