S. Gwindor m.
An Elf of Nargothrond who brought Túrin to that city (S/207-212). The meaning of this name is unclear, but David Salo suggested it might be a combination of gwain¹ “new” and -dor “lord” (GS/352).
Conceptual Development: In the earliest Lost Tales, this character was first named G. Flinding (LT2/124), and might contain ᴱN. flind “fleet-footed, swift”. In Silmarillion drafts from the 1930s his name was revised to N. Findor > N. Gwindor (SM/312).
