Lindo

"a complete consistency [...] is not to be looked for, and could only be achieved, if at all, at heavy and needless cost." — Christopher Tolkien
This article's canonicity is disputed.

Lindo was the wise keeper of the Cottage of Lost Play in Tol Eressëa. His wife was Vairë, and his father was Valwë.[1][2]

[edit] Etymolgy

Lindo is a Qenya name, probably meaning "Singer". The Gnomish version of the name was Glinda (probably related to glin "sound, voice, utterance").[3]
