Celegorm loved hunting and learned the speech of many beasts and birds. (The Silmarillion, QS, Ch. 5 - Of Eldamar and the Princes of the Eldalie)
"The name Celegorm, hasty riser, may have been a reference to his quick temper and his habit of leaping up when suddenly angered." He was the only son of Feanor to be fair-haired, hence his epesse. (The Peoples of Middle-Earth, HoMe 12, Last Writings, The Shibboleth of Feanor)
