Amrod's [[father-name]] was '''[[Pitya]][[finwë]]''', or "Little Finwë", as he was the second youngest of the [[House of Finwë]]. The short form of his name was Pityo, "Little One". His [[Amilessë|mother-name]] was originally '''[[Ambarussa]]''' ("Top-russet", referring to his hair), the same as his twin Amras, but Fëanor insisted that the twins ought to have different names and Nerdanel prophetically called him '''Umbarto''', "The Fated" (from ''[[umbar]]'' = "fate"). His father, disturbed by it, changed it to '''Ambarto''', "Upwards-exalted" (from ''[[amba]]'' = "upwards, top" and ''[[arta]]'' ="exalted", "lofty"). Nevertheless both twins called each other ''Ambarussa''. Others most often called him '''Atyarussa''', which means "Second-''russa''".<ref name="Sind">{{VT|41b}}</ref>
