Earlier versions of the legendarium

In the first drafts of the genealogy, Finwë had four sons: the youngest was named Finrun, but he was dropped after that, thus Finrod (later Finarfin) was Finwë's youngest son from then on.


In a later version Finwë had three daughters added by Indis, Findis (as their first child) Faniel (as their third), and Finvain (as their youngest). In yet later versions, Faniel was apparently dropped, while Findis and Finvain were kept. Finvain (renamed Irimë) was moved to after Fingolfin, thus Finarfin was once again the youngest child of Finwë. In J. R. R. Tolkiens fictional world of Middle-earth, Indis was the second wife of Finwë. She had two sons, Fingolfin and Finarfin, and two daughters, Findis and Irimë. She was also the stepmother to Fëanor. ...
