This article refers to the Hobbit of Westmarch. For other namesakes, see Fíriel (disambiguation).

Fíriel Fairbairn was a Hobbit of Westmarch.


Fíriel was the daughter of Elanor Gardner and Fastred of Greenholm, and thus the granddaughter of Samwise Gamgee. She was one of the Fairbairns of Undertowers in the Westmarch of the Shire, and the sister of Elfstan Fairbairn. Nothing else of her life is known, though she may have been named for Fíriel, a princess of Gondor.[1]


Fíriel means "mortal woman" in the Quenya language.[2]
