Latinized form of Gothic *Widumawi meaning "wood maiden", composed of the elements witu "wood" and mawi "girl". This name is mentioned in the appendices of J. R. R. Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings' as belonging to a princess of Rhovanion who marries King Valacar of Gondor and becomes the mother of Eldacar. Due to her non-Dúnadan blood, Vidumavi's life is much shorter than that of her husband (despite living to a great age for one of her own people) and many Gondorians are not willing to accept her son as their king.
