The surname of Vardamir

Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

A name meaning 'learned one', given as a surname to Elros' son Vardamir because of his great love of ancient lore and knowledge, which he collected from many sources. As the eldest of Elros' four children, the Sceptre of Númenor fell to him on his father's death. The extraordinary length of Elros' life, though, meant that Vardamir was 381 years old at this time - old even for a Númenórean of royal blood - and he wisely passed the Sceptre on immediately to the eldest of his own children, who became King Tar-Amandil.
