Amras and Amrod were the youngest twin sons of Fëanor. From their mother Nerdanel their inherited red hair, instead of Fëanor's black.

Amras' father name in Quenya is "Telufinwë", "Last Finwë", for he was the last of Fëanor's sons. His mother name was originally "Ambarussa", the same as Amrod, but his mother later called him "Umbarto", "the Fated". His father, disturbed by it, changed it to "Ambarto".

But "Umbarto" was prophetic indeed, for Amras was burned in the swan ships of the Teleri, when his father ordered them to be burnt at Losgar.
