|Other names||Edith (E)|
|Parentage||Lindo & possibly Vairë[note 1]|
|Children||Heorrenda & Hlúdwine|
Nothing else is known about her.
The name Earissë is in Qenya, probably being a phonological imitation of the English name Edith and its Old English form Eadgyth. Eadgyth consists of the elements éad ("riches, prosperity, good fortune, happiness") + gyth, a form of gúð ("combat, battle, war").
An earlier form of the name was Eadissë.
- Earissë is only mentioned as the daughter of Lindo, without any explicit mention of his wife - but we know from the earlier associated texts in The Book of Lost Tales that his wife was named Vairë.
