Other versions of the legendarium

In an early genealogical table for the Haladin, Halmir had a son named Haldor which became Hundar and finally Haldir. With the final change a second son named Hundar was added to the table and both brothers fought and died in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.[1] J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (ed.), The War of the Jewels, "Part Two. The Later Quenta Silmarillion: Of the Coming of Men into the West (Chapter 14)", (iii) The Haladin, p. 236</ref>
