Gelmir was a Noldorin Elf, originally of Angrod's people. After the Dagor Bragollach ("Battle of Sudden Flame"), he wandered into the southern regions of Beleriand, and settled with the people of Círdan. He was later sent by Círdan, with his companion Arminas, as a messenger to Nargothrond.
The name is Sindarin, but of unclear meaning. It could be a combination of gell ("joy") and mîr ("jewel"). If so, it is unusual that the m was not mutated to v, as would usually have happened. It may thus be that his name is North Sindarin where this change did not occur.
