The name in Sindarin for the Maia better known by his Quenya name of Ossë, whose special province was the coastal waters of the ocean, and who held power over storms and tempests. The name is related to gaer in Belegaer, which literally means 'awe' or 'dread', a reference to the great fear felt by the Elves when they first encountered the Great Sea.
