The narrative doesn't mention Glorfindel's ancestry or parentage, and it is not known whether Tolkien wrote about the subject. Considering his apparent nobility, and his name ''Glorfindel'' ("Golden-haired")<ref name="PE17"/><ref>{{S|Index}}</ref> he could be a heritage of a possible Vanyarin intermarriage, as is the case of [[Finarfin]], [[Finrod]], [[Galadriel]] and [[Idril]]. [[Robert Foster]] suggests that he might belong to the [[House of Finarfin]]<ref>{{HM|Guide}}, entry "House of Finarfin"</ref> (although Turgon was of the [[House of Fingolfin]]).

[[Finwë]]’s daughters, [[Findis]] and [[Írimë]], are two characters of the royal Noldorin-Vanyarin family tree about whom almost nothing is known, as well as whether they had descendants, leaving thus space for speculation about the ancestry of characters such as Glorfindel.
