Blind Guardian is excellent rock, sometimes heavy, but most of their Tolkien-inspired music isn't as heavy. I think I mentioned Blind Guardian (and Nightwish as well) on another music thread a long...

My name means mistress (female master, not the stealer of husbands :p), which translates into Quenya as Heriel and Sindarin as Hiriel. I use Hiriel as my screenname almost everywhere, because I think...

Wives/women

In Norwegian as well, mann means husband as well as man, and kone (and also the slighty less formal kjerring ;)) means both wife (usually this) or (old) woman. Like arcticstorm pointed out about the...
