"In this hour take the name that was foretold for you, Elessar, the Elfstone of the house of Elendil
Words of GaladrielThe Fellowship of the Ring
II 8Farewell to Lórien
High title and surname of Aragorn son of Arathorn. It was long foretold that he would take this name; it was given to him in Lórien by Galadriel. She granted him a gift of a green stone set in a silver brooch in the shape of an eagle as he and the Company of the Ring left her land (on 16 February III 3019).
When Aragorn took up the kingship of Gondor, he assumed the name Elessar, and later references to him take the form 'King Elessar'.
