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.[1] 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").[1]
