Maybe 2 is OARITSI. According to the glossary of Lost Tales I, they are mermaids, and 'oarni' are sea-spirits, but I'll go for 'oaritsi' because it has some of the word 'twists' in it.

7. LIMPE, the drink of the Eldar.

LIMP for pathetic, plus a bit of 'eh' - or something that sounds the same as 'eh?'

Nan Elmoth - sodium is squashy; so is mithril when it's mined? (Na).

Or is there a Taur-na-neldor or something, putting sodium in the middle?
