From Tolkien Gateway
Nardi was the name of a "flower-fairy" or a "flower-Vala", according to the early version of the legendarium associated with The Book of Lost Tales. Nothing else is known about her, and she doesn't appear in any of the narratives.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name Nardi is in Qenya, being derived from the root NṚŘṚ ("smell sweet").
