Meanings and history of the name Boromir: | Edit

Boromir was described by Tolkien as a name "of mixed form," and possibly combines Sindarin bor(on)- "steadfast" with either Sindarin mîr or Quenya míre "jewel." But the Stewards of Gondor also often bore names "remembered in the songs and histories of the First Age," regardless of meaning, and the name Boromir did appear during the First Age in The Silmarillion. The eleventh steward of Gondor, Denethor I, had as well a son called Boromir who was described as a great warrior. This might have been an inspiration for Denethor II to name his first son. -sourced from Boromir page on Wikipedia .
