A surname of Morwen

A name given to Morwen, the daughter of Baragund, who wedded Húrin and became the mother of Túrin and Niënor. 'Elfsheen' is a loose translation of her Elvish surname, Eledhwen. The 'sheen' of her title is a reference to the glint in Morwen's eyes that was said to mirror the light seen in the eyes of the Elves.
