Summary: Gilraen is not happy that her son must be given a new name in the house of Elrond.

The Storm Breaks
“But why?” Gilraen raged, as the storm outside roared and beat against the windows.  Lightning flickered; dazzling zigzags of light that lingered in Elrohir’s vision. 
“Why take my son’s name from him?  His father?  His identity?  Why?  He is Aragorn son of Arathorn, son of Arador;  do you deny your own brother’s  heritage?”  Her eyes flashed like the lightning.
“Nay, lady,” Elrond explained gently.  “It is your grief that speaks, not your reason.  He is the child of a long and noble lineage.  That is why he must remain hidden.” 
Thunder rumbled, underlining his words.  “He must be kept safe.”
