Glorfindel was reimbodied and sent back to Middle Earth. So, although he didn't survive his battle with the Balrog, if you wanted to ask someone what it's like to kill a Balrog you could probably ask him (or Gandalf).

My name does not have any relevence to LOTR. *Stands in shame as rotton fruit gets thrown at me*. I use this name just about everywhere i go. I take it from Set the egyptian god. I add a 't' so that it makes it more original , Sett. I use it because my life is pretty chaotic at times so the god of chaos has relevence to my life.

My name 'Beleg Cuthalion' means 'Mighty Strongbow'.

I bet some of you knew that already.

I dig the reason for your name, Sett -- that would make you our second person with an Egyptian-inspired name, as far as I know, anyway. Set was definitely a chaotic sort of guy...

I like all you people's names, if only because they're more creative than mine. Then again, that really doesn't take much....

"Immortal grey echo"... (Never thought it like that; normally I don't consider my name meaning immortal...) I don't know does it sound like a miserable little loser, or beatiful and sad.

Mine doesn't really have a meaning.
I just coined Revenwyn as a character name for an RPG one day back in 2000 and it's stuck ever since.
The "Milady" part has been added somewhat recently by my adorable fiance. He has actually called me "Milady Revenwyn" to my face before, and I just giggled.

I thank both Ruoutorin and Ohtatyaro for correcting me! One does forget things at times. You're both right of course. And Ohtatyaro, although I am obviuosly a Legolas fan I can't deny that Orlando Bloom was nice to look at. He does seem to have tried his best(bless him!) but obviously some people have got a bit carried away- his acting certainly wasn't good enough to merit all this OBsession, but teenage girls need to occupy them selves some how. Maybe we should attempt to sit them all down untill they've all read LOTR and apologised for their foolishness?

Milady Revenwyn, why don't you invent a meaning for your name? Everyones name has a meaning and if you just made up your name why not make up a meaning?

Mine means "Maiden of Piercing Radiance." It's merely wishful thinking, mind you, but on the internet, nobody can tell the difference. Heh.

I didn't even think of that. Usually I choose character names that actually have meanings. But being as I coined Revenwyn in 2000 it would seem kinda odd to pile a meaning onto her name now. Plus I haven't a clue what it would mean. I do have an idea for women who come later in her family line to inherit the name as some sort of title, however.

Well, *wyn would appear to be the same element as in the Old English name, Eowyn, where it denotes woman. Revenwyn therefore could be an Old English (or, in the context of Middle-earth, Rohirric) name. The element reven* could mean to re-ven (whatever "ven" means), or could be a shortening of revenge.

There we have it, "Revenge-woman" or possibly "Re-forwardgoing-woman" (assuming that ven is some sort of garbling of "van", as in "vanguard".

Please note, this is total humour. I am far from a philogist. VERY far....

I did intend it to be Rohirric-type. She is a warrior, but she doesn't fight for the sake of revenge. Thus I'm not quite sure the "Revenge-woman" fits for her.

Ouch. You obviously don't know Revenwyn very well. And you're my fiance!

She's got reddish-blonde hair. If I created someone with black hair, I wouldn't say that I wanted a Rohirric-type name, would I?
Sorry I'm sounding harsh hon, I just thought that after I showed you all my drawings of her you'd know what she looked like...

If you divide it up re-ven-wyn, then I get "delights in renewed hope." Re- from Latin meaning "again", -ven- is close to wen- from Old English/Rohirric meaning "hope", and -wyn from Old English/Rohirric meaning "joy, or delight" (not "woman," that's cyn or cene).

Sting

My name actually has nothing at all to do with Tolkien, although I've made amends for it elsewhere by using the handle Ancalime Erendis (Tar-Ancalime being the first reigning queen of Numenor and Erendis being her mother--and the two of them being pretty much the biggest femenazis on Arda).
Emni Windrunner came from a story I'm writing from a sub-created world (so it's kind of Tolkienesque). Her full name is Emnilia, and she earned the title Runner based on her fighting stance (she's a warrior's apprentice). Not very exciting, I'm afraid, but I liked the name enough to use it elsewhere...until I read Unfinished Tales , and then I found two names I liked better. Oh, well!

Emni Windrunner sounds pretty good. I mean, it is original as well, not jsut taken from Tolkien

So, welcome fellow warrior (ohtatyaro means warrior in quenya )

Halbarad has just left Hobbiton.
Halbarad, a kinsman of Aragorn: Hal- I don't know the meaning of, and it is an uncommon word stem, unlike ara-. -Barad is tower, and Halbarad was a tall man (but so were the rest of the Dunedain). At any rate, Halbarad was the standard bearer of Aragorn in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, and (presumably, since he led the Dunedain out of the north into Rohan) a leader of the Dunedain in Aragorn's absence. His eulogy described him as being 'dour-handed', which to me says that he was a mighty warrior, or a stern captain. His answer of the 'summons' of Aragorn (Aragorn's wish, not spoken word- see 'Passing of the Grey Company' ) bespeaks his foresight and wisdom. A loss to the Dunedain, but of course I'm biased.

Not! It may not have meaning, but who wouldn't want to be something as ancient and beautiful as the Memory of Trees?

Or maybe all the trees are gone, and I am remembering them.

Or maybe it's from the Enya song... who can tell? I wasn't aware when I signed up that I wouldn't be able to change my user name! Ach...

That's okay. I sort of like my name anyway.

I actually have a group of friends and we all call eachother by our designated Elvish names. I'm Parmawen (obviously) and it comes from Parma (meaning books) and wen (meaning maiden) =Book Maiden, since my nose is usually burried in a book, explaining why i'm so pale!

My name comes from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time books. If any of you have read them you wold pick it up straight away. But I also love dragons and dragon creatures so I guess you could say I had a personal magnetism to the name anyway, and it is kind of like I have been reborn in the world of Tolkien with the whole forum identity business...and being in Tolkien's world.

Nobody else seems to have names from other books they've read I notice. Although I only really read through the posts on this last page...

Memory of Trees... Great name none the less!

Lathriel is a name I made up for the only fanfiction I ever wrote. Its set in ME and Lathriel is a princess. I don't think the name has any eaning but I like the sound of the name.

As for my real name, in Quenya I believe it is Dur. That's what my name means anyway. So can you guess what my real name is?

I'll give you a hint, it is Italian or greek and it means dark in Italian.In greek it means rich.
I probably should have told you before that my name is not from english origin.
