Elros's name may mean "Elf of the Spray" based on a tale from his early childhood. Maedhros and Maglor abducted Elros and his twin brother, Elrond, as retribution for Elwing's refusal to relinquish a Silmaril. Maedhros and Maglor later repented, and took care of them. On a quest to regain the Silmarils from Eönwë, they left the children near a forest waterfall, where they were found. Thus he was named "Elf of the Spray". In The Silmarillion, Christopher Tolkien interprets Elros as meaning "Star-foam". In J. R. R. Tolkiens legendarium, Maedhros (Y.T. ? – Y.S. 587) was the first son of Fëanor and Nerdanel. ...

As Half-Elven, he and his brother were given the choice to be Elves or Men. Elros chose to become one of the Edain. (Elrond elected to remain an Elf.) As a reward for the sufferings of the Edain against the dark forces of Morgoth, the Valar raised an island for them to dwell in, protected from the dangers of Middle-earth. Elros and the surviving Edain set sail over Sea, and guided by the Star of Eärendil came to the great Isle of Elenna, westernmost of all Mortal lands. There they founded the realm of Númenor, or Westernesse. The Valar also granted Elros and his heirs substantially longer life-spans. In the fiction of J.R.R.
