Mor-thoron (Sindarin) = Black/Dark Eagle. An Eldar character created in the mid 1990's for a long-running roleplaying tale. Has some of the sardonically nasty characteristics of Eol, but is a far wittier conversationalist. And humble. Did I mention humble?

P.S. Groin -- I could not find that specific definition for your name in any Gaelic/Irish dictionary; however, I did find the word 'groin' in a Scots dictionary, and it means 'to groan or grunt'. The Irish translation for dwarf is 'abhac' I believe.

Eönwë is just the name if one of the Maiar (the one who led the armies againt Morgoth, and beat him!) so it's not that original.

It's the Valarin name for Telperion, the silver half of the Two Trees. I guess I just got tired of using handles that had nothing to do with the subject of the forum, and as I always seem to join them way too late to lay claim to any of the names that usually resonate with me, I figured this was one nobody else would have already taken.

My screen name is well.... not that creative, I was stumped on a name for myself and the quote that is always on the top of the page was about Sam going into Cirith Ungol and the orc was talking about how there was probably an elf or a Gondorian somewhere near, so I thought up the name TheGreatElvenWarrior for myself, which refers to Samwise and is one of my most favourite characters! So I went with it... man that was almost a year ago!

Olórin the White has just left Hobbiton.
my screen name actually has a two fold meaning... Olórin is the Maian name of Gandalf, who of course came to be known as Gandalf the White. However, Olórin the White is also a play on the fact that he was considered one of the wisest of the Maia...so Olórin the White-Olórin the Wise...I know they don't really relate in a linguistic sense but it works on my head! maybe think of it like a cross between Gandalf the White and Olórin the Wise.

I guess my screenname means that I have serious delusions of grandeur.

...Well, I do think Galadriel's pretty cool, don't you?

I also chose it because my handle elsewhere on the net is Topazlily, or "Topaz" for short and to me the name "Nerwen" sounds yellow.

My name means that I am an ancient north european Goddess of Death. See my profile for more info. Somehow I have combined this with the whole rising out of lakes and throwing swords at people idea, although, being a Goddess of Death, I drag people into lakes instead. (Mathematicians especially, but only if they are superstitious ones, because those are the tastiest.) This is also why my avatar is blue - because I am underwater.

Really, that's what it means.

Heh. Since I have a four year old child, I'd never considered your name could refer to anything but the latter.

And as a hardened Silmarillion veteran, I'm shocked it doesn't mean the younger brother of Thingol to you.

You should know, Elmo should consider it a great honour he was named after a brother of Elwe Singollo

Tolkien noted that (in Quenya) -mo '... often appeared in names or titles, sometimes with an agental significance': Ulmo was interpreted as 'the Pourer' < *UL 'pour out'

So here Quenya -mo does have agental significance 'pour out' > Pourer (one who does 'the meaning of the stem'), though not in all cases, noting Tolkien's 'sometimes'. If El- means 'star' in Elmo my guess would be something like 'Star-person'.

On the other hand, in The Shibboleth of Feanor (1968) Tolkien looks at Elwe, Olwe and the stems el-, ol-, and seems to cast doubt on an intended rendering of Elwe meaning 'Star-person': 'There is nothing known to connect Elwe more closely with the stars than all the other Eldar; and the name seems invented as a pair with Olwe, for which no 'meaning' was suggested'

I just found out. Lindale is a city in Texas. When I entered the BD I never thought long about my username, and the first thing that popped into my mind--Ainulindale--was where I based my name on. It remains one of the most interesting pieces I've ever read.

Only, back then I wasn't sure how to spell Ainulindale, and I thought it was too long. When I collected my wits I wanted to shift the name to Diwata, the Philippine counterpart of "elf", or something else closer to home or would make more sense, but too late. Oh well. What's in a name anyway.

<------ My handle has no special, mystical meaning at all - totally mundane & boring in fact.

I think it came about after watching an old Clint Eastwood film playing a character called "A Man With No Name"; and then reading the cast-credits on the end of The Two Towers film and seeing a character called "Orc - uncredited"

Then my brain started to work (yikes, how frightening is that!) and I put the two together and I offer the world "TheOrcWithNoName".

So much for a higher-education!

My first ever post sounded something like " it was Galadriel", so with that in mind I picked that as my username (the name means "Lady crowned by a radiant garland"). I added the 55 after seeing that the name was already taken, for the simple reason that I usually add this one rather than other numbers when I need/want to. Not always, but usually.

After the fact I wished I had chosen a more original name (there are what, 5 Galadriels walking around on this forum?), or at least a name that resonates more with me, like Earwen. But I'm so used to it now that if ever my account will crash, my new one will not say Earwen55, but Galadriel555.

jallanite is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
I usually use the login Jallan or jallan which is the initial of my first name followed by my last name as I just like the look and sound of it and it fits. But on some forums the names Jallan and jallan were already taken, so I usually extended it to Jallanite or jallanite on those forums.

The letters in the “-ite” suffix are supposed to stand for my book, An Introduction To Elvish.

I don’t see that there is another Jallan on the list, so I may have used jallanite just because it seemed more Tolkienish than jallan. Why I made it all lowercase I don’t remember.

MCRmyGirl4eva

MCR is the band My Chemical Romance. After their third CD, The Black Parade, came out, the british newspaper The Daily Mail accused them of being a suicide cult because a girl killed herself. They are opposed to suicide and self-harm, and replied with "Wr're not a cult, we're an army... the MCRmy!" Thus, MCRmy.

The part girl is self-explanitory, and 4eva means forever.

My sis wouldn't let me use MCRmyGirl4eva for her website, (which, btw, I'm never on) so I used Thranduilion, even though it implies that I'm male. Don't care, though.
