Galadriel
The Sindarin name Galadriel means "maiden crowned with a radiant garland," referring to Galadriel's beautiful hair. The word galad means "radiant" in Sindarin from gal or kal meaning "shine." The word riel means "garlanded maiden" from the root rig meaning "twine, wreathe." According to one tradition, the name Galadriel was given to her by Celeborn.

Some Elves outside of Lothlorien, to whom Galadriel was merely a legend, referred to her as Galadhriel because they mistakenly interpreted her name to include the element galadh, meaning "tree."

Altariel is the Quenya version of Galadriel. The word alata is the Quenya equivalent of galad, meaning "radiance." The Telerin version of her name is spelled Alatariel.
