Beware the casual words below. It was rather intentional (although you can never be sure of regarding any dialect including this, since the author is not a native speaker of English and thus not sensitive to the varieties thereby and how to harness them). It was to be a talk – and argument – between close siblings anyway. The same goes to the shortened names: Ingo for Finrod (Findaráto), Ango for Angrod (Angaráto), Náro for Aegnor (Aikanáro), Esto for Orodreth (Artaresto, the author’s own guess to Orodreth’s Quenya name), and Nissë for Galadriel (Artanis).
In Rey-verse, Finrod has 5 main names: Ingalaurë as his father-name, Ingoldo as his mother name, Felagund as his after-name from the Dwarves, Nöm as his after-name from the Men (Balan’s following, specifically, when they firstly met), and Findaráto as his after-name from his maternal foster-grandfather Ossë. The tale regarding the last name in the list can be glimpsed in two of the author’s fanworks: “Eärwen” and “Inglorion”. It will also bear mention in this piece.
