Bór the Faithful (died F.A. 472) was a leader of a tribe of Easterlings during the First Age.
Bór's people came into Beleriand after the Dagor Bragollach. He and his sons Borlad, Borlach, and Borthand swore allegiance to Maedhros and Maglor.
The name Bór is Noldorin, given by the Elves because of his loyalty to them.
