1) Noldorin Elf, brother of Finrod, who was next in line to the throne of Nargothrond when Finrod was slain by Sauron. The weak-willed Orophin was usurped by Celegorm and Curufin, but took power with the aid of Beren after his return. He established Nargothrond as an unassailable hidden realm, but succumbed to pressure form Turin to adopt a more aggressive approach, and was slain in the sacking of Nargothrond.

2) Elf, brother of Haldir and Rumil, one of the three who encountered the Fellowship of the Ring on the borders of Lorien. He couldn't speak Westron.
Both are Tolkien characters.
