Esgallhugwen has just left Hobbiton.

If my name were to be actually translated it would have been Lossefalme, but since I found this out today, after the fact that I used the Barrow-Downs name generator and chose the name Esgallhugwen, I have been trying to find what it means.

In the appendix of The Silmarillion it says that esgal means 'screen, hiding' as in Esgalduin the 'hidden river' that ran through Doriath.
wen of course means 'maiden', and I have absolutely no clue as to what hug could mean. Except of course when I joke that it means I am an Elven maiden that hides from hugs.
