Lanthir Lamath was well known for being near the house of Dior Eluchíl, son of Beren and Lúthien, when he lived there before becoming the King of Doriath. As the water cascaded downward, the light would reflect and shimmer; this inspired the name of his daughter Elwing whose name means "Star-spray".
