Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The surname, meaning 'silver-foot', of Turgon's daughter Idril, who became the mother of Eärendil the Mariner. It was her habit to walk barefoot wherever she went, and because of the paleness of her skin, she became known as Idril the silver-footed (a name that also contrasted with the golden colour of her hair).
