I think you can add your another nick to your signature. I mean, something like 'rutslegolas is also known as X'

Besides, I have an idea. How does your Screenname relate to your real name? I don;t ask rutslegolas individually, I ask all of you.

Mine, I've said, means 'warrior'. My real name is Andro (though sometimes I write it André) I'm not sure about the latter, but I somehow think it must mean 'man'. I mean - by my screen name I'm a warrior, and by my real one - man, so it is "Man Warrior" together

Ya hey, the Man Warrior is here!

Good idea

I'm George, which in Greek stands for "earth-tiller"

The name is nor related to Order of Wizards at all, unless I do not rename myself to Barmudon, thanks to davem's researches (Saruman and Sauron, why are the names similar? thread), he-he

Well, it was supposed to refer to Melkor, the ninth high Valar, but I forgot the name of that group (aratar? something like that) and put 'valar' instead. Ah well.

you were right :)

HoME V1, Ch.2 The Music of the Ainur, notes:

Quote:
Manwe, Melko, Ulmo, and Aule are marked out as 'the four great ones', ultimately the great Valar, the Aratar, came to be numbered nine, but there was much shifting in the membership of the hierarchy before this was reached

Well, my real name is Gabrielle which means "woman of God" so my name and screename together mean red-jewelled woman of God. My name looks better with those nifty accent-mark thingies: Gabríellë.

This is fun

Speaking of names, when I bought Unfinished Tales and found that Heren Istarion was in it I was astounded. "HerenIstarion from the Barrow Downs is in UT?"

Well, Feanor of the Peredhil means Fiery Spirit of the Half-Elven.

Laura, my name, means laurel leaves, honour, fame, spirit. So I guess I could be the Honoured and Famous Fiery Spirit of the Half-Elven. Or if I go by Fea, as I usually do, I am reduced to... Spirit. Laura is spirit, Fea is spirit. I guess I'm just a spirited person.

Interesting names, Fea!

Hmm...Lhunardawen means "the maiden of (the region of) Lune", and Abigail means "the father's delight." So I'm the maiden of Lune that delights my father?
Not bad, I guess...my father Beren did delight in me.

Well, also thanks to davem, I have discovered that the meaning of my real name rendered into Elvish is "Adanverieth" - typically it is even longer in Elvish than in the original! And Verieth sounds like Various with a lisp!!!!( must see if my middle and surnames are snappier! ).

My name is originally from one of these name generators but somehow I liked it and it really matches with me....
Dûrfuiniel means Daughter of dark night and I think it matches twice 'cause on one hand it's elvish (sindarin) and on the other hand it means daughter of dark night and I love the night and those fantasy night creatures as vampires etc...

Silmaril Amanaduial

Amanaduial means something odd like 'blessed maiden of the night': I looked it up some time ago but the translation didn't really make much sense... Aman, the shortened, more often used version, is 'blessed place' - the location found in the Silmarillion. But alright, I admit it: Amanaduial was the name I got when I typed my full name into the name generator. Shameful, isn't it? And when I type my full name in now, it is a completely different name that comes up.

To be fair though, Amanaduial the Archer was also the character I used in my very first RPG, a freestyle game called 'Rivendell', and Aman remain quite special to me. She was the start of a whole new era which now has me addicted and which has led to upwards of twenty games on a few different forums (the foremost, of course, being Barrowdowns). So, y'know, I suppose it works out as a worthy name - even if it was created in a moment of fangirl-madness

Actually...

It's interesting that I find this thread right after King of the North, because it isn't that different from my own.

So, my name is Formendacil. Basically, this means North-Slayer, or North-victor, Conqueror of the North. It is in the good old tradition of Romendacil, Hyarmendacil, and Umbardacil (names taken by five of the kings of Gondor). It also seemed appropriate in light of the fact that I am a Canadian (hence, conquering the North is a big thing here...). Also, I like the sound of the other -dacils, and I wanted one that no one else was likely to have.

So type "Formendacil" into Google. Last I checked, I'm the only one you come up with.

Silmaril thats alot of butterflies!

Well most of you probably know that wilwarin is quenya for butterfly. my name is Vanessa and that means butterfly, so wilwarin is like a direct elven translation of my name. The sindarin word is gwilwileth but I didn't like it as much. The 538 is just my lucky number. So I like to think of it as 538 butterflies, wouldn't that be pretty.

Neithan is the name that Turin took when he was with the outlaws, it is translated as "the wronged". I chose it just because all of my first choices were taken (Telchar for example). Had I thought of it I would have picked Narvi, I like that better but whatever. My real name is Corey which was possibly either derived from the Old Norse given name Kori (of unknown meaning), or else meant "ravine" in Gaelic.

mine means someone who kills people for a price basically. I tried to use lots of other names, but they were all taken, so I just decided, why not? All my friends say that my name sounds like a boy, but I'm not, I'm a girl. I've mostly only seen girls here, though.

Sophia the Thunder Mistress was a random name given to me by a friend in a fit of silliness. I approved of it and it stuck. Now I seem to be Sophia everywhere (or Sophe, Sophs, Sophedreams...). Not that I mind. I fancy her as a helper of Manwe's (I considered "Maia of Manwe" for a pt), even though her name's not in the right language.

My real life name is Sara, a name that far too many of us share. It means princess and could probably be best translated "Arwen" I've also seen it translated "Aredhel", which is slightly better, though I'm not an elf.

Sophia

My screen-name is the Sindarin equivelant of my Christian name. Now see if you can figure out what it is.

My screenname is rather nerdy, really. It's actually a word from my own constructed language - the nominative singular of the word for moon (pronounced EYE-thee-lace, with the th as in 'thick', not as in 'the'). I chose it simply because it's pretty (in my humble opinion!).
