"Túrin grew fair and strong [?] but he was marked with sorrow."
"For he was young, and only now reached his full manhood; and he was in truth the son of Morwen Eledhwen to look upon: dark-haired and pale-skinned, with grey eyes, and face more beautiful than any other among Mortal Men, in the Elder Days. His speech and bearing were that of the ancient kingdom of Doriath, and even among the Elves he might be taken for one from the great houses of the Noldor; therefore many called him Adanedhel, the Elf-Man."

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion Index of Names
Thus Beleg returned once more to Túrin […] and with him he brought out of Dimbar the Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin. […] Túrin put on again the Helm of Hador; and far and wide in Beleriand the whisper went, under wood and over stream and through the passes of the hills, saying that the Helm and Bow that had fallen in Dimbar had arisen again beyond hope. […] Túrin named himself anew, Gorthol, the Dread Helm, and his heart was high again. […] Then Morgoth laughed, for now by the Dragon-helm was Húrin's son revealed to him again
