In J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, Galadriel was an elf and the Lady of Lothlórien. Her husband was Lord Celeborn. She was one of the most beautiful and most powerful elves of Middle Earth. Her daughter, Celebrían, was the wife of Elrond, and the mother of Arwen. Galadriel assisted the Fellowship of the Ring after they escaped from the mines of Moria. Frodo offered the One Ring to her, but she refused it, knowing that it would corrupt her.

The name Galadriel was invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. In the books, the name was given to her by her husband, and meant "maiden crowned with a garland of bright radiance." The name has seen some occasional use, but has always hovered at the bottom of the SSA's name database. The last time it appeared was in 2006, when it was given to only 5 girls.
