A Sindarin name for the Deep Elves

The Sindarin word golodh referred to one who was learned or possessed deep knowledge. With the suffix -rim ('people') it became attached, at least east of the Sea, to that people known more commonly as the Noldor. When referring to several of these Elves, rather than the entire people, the plural form was gelydh, as seen in the name Annon-in-Gelydh, the gate built by the Noldor of Nevrast.
