The initial element of Galadriel (galad-) has to do with "light" or
"radiance" rather than "golden" as such. The rest combines elements for
"crown" or "garland" (-ri-) and "maiden" (-el).
But if you use the Sindarin word for "red" as the initial element,
replacing _galad_, the resulting form would be Caradhriel (for
_caran-riel_; compare _Caradhras_ for _Caran-rass_ "Red-horn", since _nr_
becomes _dhr_ in Sindarin).
