Etymology

The name Finwë is one of the oldest recorded names of the High Elves which would make sense given Finwe was of the First Generation of Elves. It is not certain if Finwë had any clear meaning, but it can be analyzed as fin- (derived from Common Eldarin PHIN "hair") + -wë (suffix generally used for male names).
