After the Dagor Bragollach, when Dorthonion was ruined and infested, Emeldir's husband Barahir and her only child and son Beren became outlaws fighting the evil creatures. Emeldir would have preferred to stay with her family to fight, but as the women and children of the First House of the Edain had to flee from their homes, Emeldir finally led them, and after many hardships they reached Brethil. It was because of this bravery, she was known as Emeldir the Man-hearted.
Patrick H. Wynne has suggested that Emeldir possibly consists of Sindarin emel ("mother") + dir ("man"), yielding a hypothetical translation "manly-mother" or "mother with manly courage" (close in meaning to her epithet the Manhearted).
