Irmo (Quenya, pronounced [ˈirmo]) was the true name of the Vala who was usually named Lórien ([ˈloːri.en]), which is rightly the place of his dwelling. He was the husband of Estë and the brother of Námo (more commonly known as Mandos) and Nienna.
When the Sun and Moon were originally set in their paths "Varda purposed that the two vessels should journey in Ilmen and ever be aloft". It was largely due to the prayers of Irmo and Estë, "who said that sleep and rest had been banished from the Earth", that Varda changed her council and allowed a time of night.
Irmo means Desirer or Master of Desire. His common name Lórien (in Quenya) means Land of Dreams, so he is also given the title Master of Dreams. His Sindarin name is Lúrin ([ˈluːrin]).
