Lachwen. I was so proud of this...

Lach (or, technically, lhach) means "leaping flame" in Sindarin. "Wen, of course, is "maiden." So Lachwen, the Maiden of Leaping Flame.

I made up this name partially because I love fire, partially because of my own firey temper, but in reality it was a surname for a character in a fanfic I never finished. She was sort of an Elven version of owyn, you know, a hardcore warrior-maiden who travelled with the Rangers. In my story, Elrohir gave her the name after seeing her first fight against Orcs, when she seriously poned them.

In a startling coincidence, the character's given name was Esgalost, "The Hidden Fortress," which was just what I got from the name generator. But I can help you with your name, Esgallhugwen!

OK, the element you don't understand is not hug but lhug (notice the double L in your name?). Lhg is the Sindarin form of Quenya (h)lk, which means "snake, serpent." The derivative lok-, "bend, loop", is found in Urulki, the Quenya name for Dragons. So your name means something like "Hidden Serpent Maiden."

Wow, I've read The Silmarillion a few too many times...

Of course! *wacks self on head* I do now recall that I have looked up lhug before but for some reason I chose to pay little attention to it, perhaps because I was uncertain on something that I now cannot recall. Oh well 'tis not important now that Lachwen has so courteously jogged my slumbering memory.

Hmm how to put it:

The Maiden of Hiding Serpents (or Dragons perhaps)?

Any suggestions? I'm feeling awefully dumb

Not really. The word Morgul comes from Mor - dark, and gul - sorcery, knowledge. As for the queen, I've long since dropped it in other forums, but I really should have used Tari or Bereth.

Noxomanus is a name that has nothing to do with LotR,but does IMO, have a dark and sinister tone to it. It's derived from ancient Greek and Latin, I think.

Nux, night, combined with manus or hand or claw. Noxomanus thus means Night-Claw. As for my avatar,what could be more symbolic for a 'night-claw' then an owl?

Laitoste is my name, Lauren, in Quenya. According to the site I got the translation from (quenya lapseparma) says my name is the feminine form of Laurence, which is from Latin 'from Laurentum'. I've always thought that my name meant 'crown of laurel leaves' or something to that extent. Whatever works, I suppose.

I'll have to remember this. There are a lot of women named Laura in my life, therefore its pretty applicable to me. Laura, Laurie, Lori, Laura, Laura, Lauren... Kinda scary. And confusing. Very confusing when you get three Lauras in the same house.

This is the point when I curse my career choice and lack of naming abilities.

Meela is just an ordinary name. I can't find a meaning for it. I joined when I was studying egyptology and chose the name in homage to my mentor.

My other name is Alesse, and *searching*.... turns out to be the name of a birth control pill... okay, moving on... *checks elvishness* apparently 'esse' means name. So Alesse could be warped to mean 'a name'. Nice and simple, huh?

My name

My name means "Keeper of Dol Goldur".

I keep Dol Goldur nice, I am it's keeper. Unfortunately waaaaaaay back when I stumbled across the Barrow Downs and the Wights beckoned me in, I mispelled Guldur as Goldur.

What does Dol Guldur mean? It means ... Hill of Black Magic. Guldur means Black Magic, Dol means Hill. Easy enough? Actually, Dol means "head" but it's used figuratively to describe high places, such as Dol Guldur and Dol Baran, or Dol Amroth.

Well, let's see. "Fire", as in "pretty flame". I have some slightly pyro tendancies when the mood takes me. (Not usually, just occaisionally). And "foot" as in 12 inches. So I'm a 12 inch flame.

Seriously, though, Firefoot is the name of omer's horse and I have no idea why I picked that at the moment. It just sounded cool, I guess.

Don't I know that mood... I have the same one. Remember "Fiery Spirit"? Hoo-boy... I was the one who sits in the back of the Chemistry room playing with the sparkers (for the bunsen burners). My entire lab thought I was nuts. That's okay though, since it was mutual.

For a little more history of Fea's name, the "of the" comes from a stage I went through when all of my creative writing characters were of some place or group. Example: Princess Miriam Anamaeri Julietta Sarafina of Ayviaron. Usually I just called her Miri.

So my name turns into Half-elven Fiery Spirit Who Likes The Word "Of". I could call myself Hefswltwo...

Kranshaa: The solar plane of Kahanah, controlling the Grinhilam Ray. The Pale Blue Ray of Recording and Foresight, and who is known as the Recording Lord, The Lord of the Tenth Solar Plane. One of the Twelve Solar Planes discussed in the belief system of the Holy Order of Graal, a religion which I have, in fact, never heard of, and sounds like a load of Oliphaunt manure (apologies to any BD-Members of the Holy Order of Graal enclosed herein).

Kranshanism: An obscure division of uncongregated Hinduism revolving around the worship of Krishna, one of Vishnu's numerous avatars. Unlike Krishnaism, Kranshanism is more liberal, but more strict with its liberalism, ironically. Despite they're teachings of dismissal involving their believers' adherance to Krishnaism, they enforce 'being liberal' more strictly that Krishnaists. I'm not Hindu, by the way, nor am I Krishnaist or Kranshanist.

Koransha: A series of late Qing Dynasty Porcelain vases that were constantly reproduced in factories in Southern China throughout the 19th Century. Many were exported illegally to Korea, and later stolen by North Koreans nearly a century afterward, after the communist division of the country. The Northern Koreans still hold the Koransha Vases, which have risen steadily in value. They claim that the Koranshas they hold are the authentic vases from the Qing Dynasty, but a foreign inspector revealed that they were falsified, one of the many reproduced copies, and the real Koranshas were either still in South Korea, or had remained in China.

Kransha Gora: A rather eccentric scholar from Luxembourg who wrote Le Seigneur des Annaeux, Un Critique, a particularly bizarre Tolkien review. I've actually read this, the guy's utterly insane. He has a very soft spot in his heart for Mr. Friedrich Nietzche...that's Post-Insane-Asylum-Commitment Nietzche.

Kransha: A mild-mannered, relatively unintelligent young man, not yet old enough to be called old, not young enough to be called young, who doesn't mind being called an 'orc' and has been known to relish the fact that he is a villainous individual. Some say he has demon blood in him, others say he has Lenin's blood in him, but nobody really thinks he's evil...just...misunderstood...

Same here, except it was our whole table. If you get a lot of the flint powder built up in the bottom of the sparker and then fling it into the flame, it sparkles! My chem teacher kept scolding us for doing that; fortunately he's not a very good disciplinarian...

But that's OT! Now for something actually pertaining to the thread, I have a question for those familiar with Quenya. Which syllable in Encaitare gets the stress?

[rant]Yes, that's true, but that would be my younger brother's definition of the name. You see (I probably should've told all you people by now, but I never felt it necessary), when 'Kransha' first came around here, it was more or less that aforementioned younger brother, who is very Tolkien wise, but I believe (secretly) that he really expected this site to be a little...to put it bluntly...stupider. He got tired of it fast, and I discovered. Needless to say, I would probably change my SN if I could, since this isn't mine per se. I decided I might try my hand at really getting into the 'Kransha' thing. It's not a bad name, though (suits me, I suppose). I've been subtle getting rid of some of 'his' posts, that didn't go with the new management. The kid sounds just like me, really, so it's impossible (sometimes) to tell his posts apart from mine. I could point them out to you... [/rant]

BTW, even though this is irrelevant, it is about my SN, so it seems on topic...or is that just a dark facade! We'll never know...or will we?....No...

Thanks, Nilpaurion! That is what I thought, but I just needed verification because I kinda like it better with the stress on the second-to-last syllable... oh well, at least I'll have it right from now on!

Lachwen, in Laitaine, the stress is like this: Laitaine

I suppose any meaning I could retroactively assign to my nickname would not stand up to the shining verbosity and eclecticism of Kransha! "Underhill" was my idea of the "obvious pseudonym," a la Frodo Baggins. (Then I found everyone else thought of the same exact thing before me...). Lyta is a Vorlon-altered psychic rebellious time bomb with undiscovered (perhaps undiscoverable?) powers, i.e., Lyta Alexander from Babylon 5, one of my favorite science fiction television shows of all time. Plus, I've sort of become Lyta online by default over the years. I even think in "Lyta" if you get my meaning!

Cheers,
Lyta

How is "Lyta" pronounced, Lyta? As in, "Lighta" or "Leeta"? Because, since part of my real name is Lita (pronounced Leeta) I have always spoken your screenname that way in my mind, but I realize it might be wrong and there's nothing I hate quite so much as mispronouncing things....

And Kransha... you know you could have just created a new account for yourself, instead of stealing your little brother's identity. *sticks nose in the air* Actually, though, I can see how that would be handy. Any time you take heat for a post you can actually claim that it was your little brother, Little Kransha.... In fact I may try that myself. There are a few posts I can think of that I would like to claim my evil twin wrote because of course I would never say something so foolish.... And this is shaping up to be one of them.... *moseys off, twitching*

White-Hand Meaningless - it's all meaningless

My screen name bears absolutly no resmblence to my character, beliefs or tendancies (that's the official story and I'm sticking to it).

Shia'tan, islamic name for Satan, well the name just seemed to fit in with the conceit of the Barrow Downs, where dark and evil things dwell to lure the unsuspecting to thier doom!

It is also the name of a minor character in the short stories of Robert Jordan.

*pounces on Lyta* Babylon 5 was the greatest! I love you now!

By the way, Lyta, did you ever catch that subtle Middle-earth reference they stuck into B5? The homeworld of the Shadows being Kazadum?

Oh, man, I'm a sci-fi nut. Give me Babylon 5 and Firefly, and I'm happy forever.

Silmaril My name makes no sense!

My name does have something to do with LotR. (more like LotP) I used to be lotrgirl but that was before I was introduced to the Lord of the Pants thread in Middle-Earth Mirth. I thought that the thread was outrageously funny and if anyones reads my profile they would find that I put a lot of "pants" humor in it. Back to topic, I chose Lady because I am a girl and of the Pants in honor of the thread. I tried out my real name on the name generator. I forgot what it was. Sadly I cannot change my screen name to anything more intelligent so I'm stuck as Lady of the Pants forever. *sniff,sniff*


~Lady of the Pants

(maybe I'll sign off next time as The girl formerly known as Lady of the Pants!)

My name is just my Elvish name from the BD name generator. At first it was all I could think of that wasn't taken and I didn't like it. Now I couldn't imagine myself with any other screenname.

Sometimes I think I'm part mermaid (without the tail). Every single pool I see, I have to jump in or "accidentally" fall into. I can watch a waterfall or even water running from a tap for forever, or until an armoured truck pulls up with the water bill.

I do hope that's no one I know, Elven Hunter.

HerenIstarion, how did you know that?

boy, i think mine's pretty obvious. *mutters* stupid adolescent ideas..... *snaps back to reality* anyway, i guess i was facinated with Arwen at the time i came up with that. or maybe i was just un-creative. either way, i wish i could change it. *sigh* oh, well. i probably wouldn't come up with anything brilliant. but you've gotta admit, "elronds_daughter" provides for quite a bit of creativity.

cheers!

Roughly, my name means "The maiden by the birch."

I hardly remember which parts are Sindarin and which were Quenya. "Nef" means beside (I think), "Fer" or "Choir" would be one of the words meaning "birch," and "Wen" is the tell-tale maiden.

I got it from the name generator. whopee!

I finally managed to navigate back to this thread, and I didn't realize there were so many of the B5 crowd lurking about here in the Down Below! (..always liked the concept of "Down Below"!) (Wouldn't want to go "Downtown" though!-obscure B5 reference for aficianados out there!)
Diamond, Lyta is pronounced as you said "Lee-ta" just like Ms. Alexander on B5.

Lachwen, Z'ha'Dum/Khazad-Dum: real good one there! What about the Third Age of Mankind, (leave off the "10 years after the Minbari War" part). Also the Rangers and even the pits of Z'ha'Dum with the lone resident Lorien, oldest and First! I can't even begin to count the Middle Earth references in B5! I've called it "Lord of the Rings" in space! Even has elements of the Silmarillion! The whole concept of "Beyond the Rim," with the mass exodus of Technomages and finally the Shadows and Vorlons, along with Lorien, leave for the Rim. Like the Elves and magical Firstborn Races (Old Ones)!

Lots of good Middle Earth references in B5! Wondered why I liked it so much!

Cheers!
Lyta
