Tolkiens översättningsguide
Fairbairn. Translate. It is an English surname, a northern variant of the name Fairchild. It is used by me to suggest that the elvish beauty of Elanor, daughter of Sam, was long inherited by her descendants. Elanor was also remarkable for her golden hair; and in modern English fair when used of complexion or hair means primarily blond, but though this association was meant to be present in the minds of English readers, it need not be represented. 
Kommentar
"Fagerbarn" ligger nog närmast till hands, men jag gillar Anderssons lilla ändring till "-born"! Det gör att det låter betydligt mer namnigt, utan att betydelsen av "nedärvd skönhet" går förlorad.
