Amras (d.FA 532) and his twin brother Amrod were the youngest sons of Fëanor. Through their mother Nerdanel they inherited red hair (probably a dark red), instead of Fëanor's black.

EtymologyEdit

Amras' father name in Quenya is Telufinwë, "Last Finwë", for he was the last of Fëanor's sons. His mother name was originally Ambarussa ("top-russet", referring to his hair), the same as his brother Amrod, but Fëanor insisted that the twins ought to have different names and Nerdanel later called him Umbarto, "the Fated". His father, disturbed by it, changed it to Ambarto. Nevertheless both twins called each other Ambarussa.

However "Umbarto" proved to be a prophetic name, for Amras was accidentally killed in the swan ships of the Teleri, when his father ordered them to be burnt at Losgar.

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

There is no trace of the death of Amras at Losgar in the published Silmarillion, as it was a very late idea by Tolkien, omitted by Christopher Tolkien as he did not at the time see how it could be incorporated into the primary text of the Silmarillion. Where both Amrod and Amras are mentioned in the published text after the landing in Losgar, it should according to Tolkien's later wishes be Amrod alone. The information regarding Amras' naming, especially, comes from The Peoples of Middle-earth. On the other hand in the History of Middle-Earth it is spoken of "the five sons of Fëanor", thus implying that both of the twins perished in the fire.
