Daughter of Uinen

A title rejected by Erendis

"Call me by no such name! I am no daughter of Uinen: rather is she my foe."
Words of Erendis at Andúnië
from Aldarion and Erendis
in Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth

During the time that Aldarion was courting Erendis, they travelled to Andúnië in the west of Númenor to take part in the celebrations of the centenary of the Guild of Venturers. There they were received by Valandil, the first Lord of Andúnië, and he held a great feast for them. At that feast he toasted Erendis, naming her Uinéniel, translated 'Daughter of Uinen' (Uinen being a Maia of the Sea and adopted patron of the Venturers). Erendis, who held no love of the Sea, openly rejected the title, going so far as to name Uinen her enemy.
