Master of Doom

Tûrin’s surname Turambar

The literal meaning of Turambar, the surname taken by Túrin son of Húrin. Pursued by a curse of Morgoth, he at last found himself among the Woodmen of Brethil, where he took a new name and remained hidden for a time. He chose the name Turambar in the hope that he had escaped Morgoth's curse, a hope that would prove vain in the end.
