An Elf of the House of Fingolfin. Though not much is known about him for sure, he seems to have been a nobleman of Gondolin (at least, his name means 'noble one', and his son Voronwë came from Turgon's Hidden City).
The wife of Aranwë is never given a name, but it is known that she was a Grey-elf who belonged to the kin of Círdan the Shipwright. Círdan was lord of the coastland regions of the Falas, directly southward of Aranwë's old home in Nevrast, a fact that further reinforces the idea that Aranwë himself had a degree of noble blood.
