Your really close Ka. So I've decided I will reveal my name.
Drumroll please...
My name is Adriana
So Elianna you were right with the fact that I am a girl.

Thankyou. I had a friend once named Adrian, and I remembered what it meant. Since I really didn't know your gender, I used both definitions.

And I've always loved Elbereth/Varda/Elentari. When I first read LotR I was intrigued and wanted to know who she was, and after the Silmarillion she became a favorite (one of many)

Ohtatyaro- I though the Quenya word "Ohtar" meant "Warrior" (like the mention of Ohtar in LotR) Correct me if I'm wrong Unless your name was a variation i don't know (I haven't studied too far in Quenya yet )

Well my name obviously means "The Black Sword" I took it because Túrin is one of my favorite characters and I like the sound of Mormegil. However I wish I had capatilized the "m"

Well, Turin is one of my favourite characters in ME, so I wanted to take one of his many names.

While in Nargothrond, he was called Adanedhel which is Man-Elf, because he had such resembalnce to an elf

Also while he was in Nargothrond, he wouldn't reveal his true name to Finduilas, so she named him Thurin, which is The Secret.

White Tree Imrahil

Imrahil for the Prince of Dol Amroth who fought at the Pelennor and marched with the host of Aragorn II Elessar. Personally, I loved the part in ROTK when Imrahil tells the heralds to change the call "The Lords of Gondor are come! Let all leave this land or yield them up!" from "The Lords of Gondor" to " The King Elessar."

I think we are both right. I mean, it is variation of the same stem, after all. I looked it up in Etymologies:

Q ohta war
Q tyaro doer, actor

ohta+tyaro=ohtatyaro | war+doer=wardoer~warrior

I mean, probably, ohtar is more like 'of war', with the same translation as 'war doer'

I simply did the honorable thing and .... stole my screenname. It is not mine to explain, I will simply leave this quote from this 'zifnab' character. And let you ponder the yonder...


"'Don't meddle in the affairs of wizards,' he said in lofty tones, "for they are subtle and quick to anger.' A fellow sorcerer said that. Good at his job, knew alot about jewelry. Not bad at fireworks, either. Wasn't the snappy dresser Merlin was, though. Let's see, whats his name? Raist--no, that was the irritating young chap, kept hacking and spitting up blood all the time. Disgusting. The other's name was Gand-something or other..."

My first name is the feminine version of Elrohir. Elrohir means Elf-Horse-Master (or something similar), so therefore I am Elf-Horse-Maiden (or lady). I love horses, and Elrohir is one of my favorite characters, so there you have it. Tinúviel is pretty self explanatory.

mine is simple enough. here it goes, The rim or uppermost edge of a hollow container or natural basin. I also have a secondary character in role play named Nawalme. In Quenya I beleive it means torture.
(being dead has been rather pleasant now that the rotting process has finished for me )

Ngwalme is torture in Quenya, also a name for one of the tengwar, hardly used in transliterating into English because it stands for "ngw."

Elvish turtle?!...

Mine came from my obsession and not-so-alter-ego of a turtle. All of my friends and even people who don't know me well assosiate turtles with me for various reasons. I was bored and decided there should be an elvish word for turtle, there is not so I decided when trying to come up with a screenname to define turtle in elvish. So I translated "Home carrying animal", one simple to translate definition of a turtle, into Quenya-Már colië Lamen other than the fact that Lamen would technically not include reptiles. It sounded best this way though and looked better as Márcolië Lamen so I decided upon that.

Celuien means something along the lines of Maiden of the Flowing Water. It's a play on my real name.

I'm also curious about the Hookbilled One.

Tolkien Tadaa!

wel my name is Rune and my fathers name is Bjarne.

Rune has a meaning of its own - secret lore - of course this is the same name as the Runes witch were used for writing.

The reason i chose this name was that all of the really cool names was taken and i did not want too use hours looking for a cool name i the sil.

(and i do not know elvish so could not translate it)
(is it not Nolvo or somthing like that ?)

Ahhh...

"Valesse" is.... sound.
It doesn't mean sound, but thats what it started out as. I made a lot of goofy, jumbled noise and it all came out at once. Why? I was making up a character name for a Legend of Zelda spoof me, my twin, and my friends were working on.

I liked it instantly, but couldn't put a finger on why it fit so well with the character-part that we had given her-- but then it hit me. 'Valesse' came from 'Valiance', and in considering she was probably named after Link (who was in charge of [the triforce of] Courage) it made sense!... well at least if you're into Zelda games it does.

Turns out it is also very close to the name of some line of French luggage. You're welcome to call me either "Couragous" or just "Luggage" if you want, but Val will do just fine ; )

Valesse, Legend of Zelda? You are clearly extremely cool.


As for my name...it might make less sense than anything else, because that's what I do. Malkatoj is actually Esperanto, but we can't quite figure out what it means. I can, however, explain the etymology and hope it makes *some* sense.

Mal: opposite. For example, 'hela' is light and 'malhela' is dark.
Kato: Cat. As in, meow.
j: plural, pronounced like a Y

So my name means "opposite of multiple cats" and I can't figure out what that would actually be. So, any ideas would be greatly appreciated, so I know what I'm named after.

Roa_Aoife is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Because I bet everyone is mispronoucing it...

First, my real name, Kate, Katherine, Katie, etc, has several meanings: The more accepted one, "Pure" from the Greek katharos (this was actually started by the romans); the closest to the original name, "Each of two," from Hekaterine; it's loosely related to aikia, which means "Torture"; and it's believed to be directly related to Hecate, the goddess of the dark moon, wisdom, tombs, and keeper of the keys to the underworld. I think that last one is quite fitting for the downs.

My screenname (pronounced Row-ah Ee-fah), which I use just about everywhere, is another name for Aoife Beargh, the daughter of an Irish king and one of the last warriors to die fighting the Norman invasion. Roa Aoife literally means Aoife the Red which she was called for two reasons: 1) Her flaming red hair, which she would plait into two long braids, at the end of which she would weave in sharp rocks, so that when she turned her head quickly the braids would fly out and strike her opponent, and 2) the front of her armour had long spikes coming out of the front, and she would grab her enemies and impale them, causing the front of her armour to run red with blood.

In a word, she's the historical figure I most admire.

malkatoj, dogs or dog, perhaps?

My screenname has nothing Tolkienish at all about it.

Jenny is my RL name--

Jennifer Elaine, two Welsh queens whose stories end tragically (Strangely, both because of the love of the same man, which is why you will never find me cheering for Lancelot.). Mine will go better...Jennifer is from gwyn meaning fair/white and hwyfar meaning smooth, and Elaine is an old French form of Helen, which could have derived from either the Greek words meaning torch or moon...

In Sindarin, I am Pathuilos/Faenpathe Naurdi/Ithile (I can't remember the key command for the feminine -e ending) (there are infinite ways to translate it, but these are my favorite)

In Quenya, I am Lossepaste (or a host of other ways to say the first part, but Tolkien gave us only one way to say smooth...makes me sound like some sort of Italian dinner, in my opinion) Caline/Isilnis/Isilwen...

Ok that's taken a lot of time.

Hallu is an inside joke between some friends of mine; it stands for The Mass Hallucination. A title really...

EDIT: I could really render my middle name in Sindarin better...only when I went through the Quenya did it occur to me to translate 'torch' as 'a light' rather than fire. Frankly 'Narcalime' (Quenya) is even better than what I chose, 'a fiery light'...agh! must work! quit playing with words!

I guess there's no big secret what my screen name stands for? And of course it's not the ugly wart-face in the movies but the Lord of Balrogs. But why did I choose it? Well, sometimes I wonder myself. When I registered for this forum I was in desperate need for a nick, and as balrogs, and especially fights between balrogs and great warriors (Glorfindel, Echtelion, Fingon etc.), has always invoked a special interest I chose Gothmog.

Now when I look back, I sometimes regret my choice. There's so many beautiful and clever names among the Downer's that I'm a bit ashamed that I took one straight from the books, but I guess it's something I'll have to live with

Silmaril Name Generator

Well, I looked up "derek" in an english-to-elvish name generator, and it said-

Caunwaithon
(Caun-wye-thonn)-----------------Leader of The People.








I thought that was pretty cool, and had some foreshadowing to it.

Parmastahir means . . .

parma = book
asta = month
hir = root for "to find"

Therefore "book of months finder" which (to me) is "calendar collector". I collect the Tolkien calendars. You can find my collection/catalog at:

www.angelfire.com/tn3/tolkiencalendars

Hope you like it (or at least find it of interest!)

Best to all,

Parmastahir
