Sting What would you name your sword

You know the swords in Middle Earth normaly have names. Well, what would you name your sword? I was thinking of 'Slice & Dice'.

Hmmm... Paperweight the Unused. (Seriously, what would I do with a sword? I named my white cane "Excalibur" once, though; that was before I got my dog.)

'Narsil' or something like that.

Bob the Idiot-chopper definatly outstrips Slice and Dice(which really wasn't good at all) But in my opinion all these names are great. I'm getting tons of laughs. Keep the names coming.

Hm. Ages ago I had an elf-like character whose sword was named 'To Sanctify Justice' I gave it a name that was it some made up language which was supposed to mean the above. Out of curiosity I put To Sanctify Justice in the name generator (Elf) and came out with:

Morhuanion.

Guess I'd name my sword that. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Paperweight the Unused is Bragolr in Elvish and, if it were a hobbit, my sword would be Saradoc Brown of Woody End! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Fluffy or Flossy. If I had a sword and a matching dagger that's what I'd call them.

Seriously? Angruin

Well, for my work in the garment trade, I'm going to need 3 swords:

Alagdeloth: Paper Scissors (for pattern-making when the CAD system crashes)
Bragolmereth: Fabric Cleaver
Sirithlithion: Pinking Shears (used only for fabric swatches on story boards!)

They sound so elegant in Elvish.

Belegthlion meaning "Justice and Mercy"

or something more menacing like

Galenchilion meaning "Devil's Bane"
Nilmerethion meaning "Demon Fang"
Ringgaerion meaning "Righteous Anger"
Neftalion meaning "Dragon Tooth"

or something really hardcore like

Eglanedlorion which is "I kill bad guys and always get the girl"

Guess I could just name it Little Phil.
