Amrod's father name in Quenya is "Pityafinwë", "Little Finwë". His mother name is "Ambarussa", "Top-russet", and this refers to his hair. His younger twin Amras was also called Ambarussa, and they both answered to the name. Amras however was killed at the burning of the ships in Losgar.
Other versions of the legendarium
In the published Silmarillion Amrod only appears together with his twin brother Amras, but in late writings which were left out of the edited Silmarillion by Christopher Tolkien the story of Amras' death at Losgar appeared. For this reason wherever both Amrod and Amras appear in the published material it should be read as Amrod alone.
