Why did you choose your nicknames as they are?

Personally I chose gamegie as the French spelling for my favorite little hobbit SAM.

What about you?

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

I needed a Tolkien related name for Barliman's at theonering.net. I knew almost imediately that it would be one of Bilbo's nicknames from The Hobbit. First I was looking at the names he gave to Smaug, but on a whim I flipped back through the book and came across 'burrahobbit' and I've used it ever since for anything Tolkien related.

There is a similar topic in The Barrow-downs called &quot;Where'd you get that nick?&quot;

What's a burrahobbit got to do with my pocket, anyways?</p>Edited by: <A HREF=http://www.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_profile&u=00000062>burrahob bit</A> at: 11/4/00 9:13:34 am

Nickname

Well... I chose Eldarion because: no man knows or what kind of person he was except for that Aragorn was giving the rule to him w/o any doubt. But the main point was that no one I knew used that nickname.

Re: Nickname

I chose this nickname just because I love the name and character Feanor. Not much more than that can be said. Also, like Eldarion, I chose this because no one else had taken it (probably because there's such little respect for Feanor).

The red!

Ok, I'll give this a go the second time around. <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

I have lovely long fiery-red tresses. Quite unlike the whips of a balrog.

"With that they parted, and it was then the time of sunset; and when after a while they turned and looked back, they saw the King of the West sitting upon his horse with his knights about him; and the falling Sun shone upon them and made all their harness to gleam like red gold, and the white mantle of Aragorn was turned to a flame. Then Aragorn took the green stone and held it up, and there came a green fire from his hand."</p>

Re: The red!

Some reasons why I took this alias I have:
- it's orcish, and I like orcs
- it means &quot;Old Man&quot;, and age is something I respect greatly
- &quot;Old Man&quot; is somehow ironic for my person
- &quot;Old Man&quot; has an air of wisdom, and still decrepitude, infirmity, so to say
- it sounds nicely grim
- it refers to Saruman, one of the most interesting characters, and also a rebel
- it is a clear Tolkien reference, but not as obvious as others

Put &quot;in nuce&quot;, it is a nóme de guerre, a war-mask like a dwarf's; not a shiny-happy one. Not that I feel like at war here, but when I put on a mask it needn't be one which smiles and covers a face which is also smiling. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">
Besides, it might be taken as politically questionable if I followed red's example and called myself &quot;brown&quot;....

Because. . .

Well I chose this because I like Rosie Cotton even though she has a very small part. But the nick I use most as_eowyn I chose because Eowyn is my favorite woman in the books. I guess that's because I can relate to her she's stuck at home with the weak and the old and so am I.

Nicknames

I was looking for a nick that had something to do with stars. When I looked it up, I found Elendil. I really like it because it had two meanings: &quot;Lover of stars&quot; and &quot;Elf-friend&quot;. Both meanings were appropriate, so it was an easy choice.

my nickname

I choose Lorien as a nickname because I love Lothlorien and elves, and also because of its meaning: I dream very often, even when I am awake...

On the other hand, I wouldn´t like to take a character´s name as a nickname.A personal mania.So I choose Lorien de Loth.There are Loriens and Lothloriens, but until now I have never met another Lorien de Loth.

Re: my nickname

Voronwe has a fairly obscure part in the Silmarillion, being mentioned but once or twice. However, he does play a much more important role in Unfinished Tales. I'm a great UT fan, hence the choice of nick. Also, the idea of being a mariner kinda strikes a chord with me for some reason.

Frankly and looking back at things, I wish I had chosen another nickname in the lines of either Bombadil or Fangorn, or maybe something darker succ as King of Angmar but I am sure they were taken..

My name

As mentioned elsewhere a long, long time ago, my name is a mix of the title of my favorite X-Files episode (&quot;War of the Coprophages&quot and how many books will be in the Harry Potter series (7). LOTR fits in because gandalf is part of my e-mail address.

I always had a special place for the Nine. Their presence is known before they arrive in the form of a choking fear. I had noticed somewhere that the Black Captain was also known as Morgul, so for me it was an obviuos choice..

Re: the nickname

I was looking at some black speech words.

Nazg means ring and 'goth' means lord. As in Morgoth. and Nazgul. Gul=Wraith.

I don't know if combining them is right but if Tolkien can do it with Nazgul then I can do it with Nazgoth. Ring Lord.

Re: the nickname

Gilthalion is an elvish name that was my attempt made in ancient times, before many of you were born, to translate my Christian name &quot;Robert.&quot;

Robert = &quot;shining fame&quot;

Way back about 20 years ago, there were no internet references handy, nor much else! I chose &quot;thalion&quot; for strong/brave/stalwart and &quot;gil&quot; for star. That was as close as I could come.

&quot;Thaliongil&quot; for Brave/Strong Star didn't sound right.

&quot;Gilthalion&quot; sounded better to my ears, and that was that.

Oddly enough, I am more like a hobbit than an elf, but I still liked the way it sounded, so when I discovered these Tolkien Discussion Boards, I started using the name anyway!

When I joined this board I was reading the Silmarillion. And particularly about Aldaron which translates as 'one who loves trees.' And that's quite true. I own a cabin at the foot of Mount Rainier in the state of Washington. It's surrounded by fir trees.

Re: Re:the nickname

Alas, no scholarly Tolkien derivation for my nickname. It's just a combination of my favorite character and the initials of my college (Mary Washington College) where my friends and I spent far more time delving into Middle Earth than was good for our grade point averages!!

Nick

I've allways had a thing for dwarves and their crafts, proberly because my own hands can do nothing of much practical use. Dwarves are truehearted and sturdy folk, and Telchar was I deem the most reputated smith of the all. I allways (from I was little) had the thourght that Anduril was &quot;just&quot; a broken sword repaired by elves of Imladris. In my mind much inferior to the original Narsil made by Telchar

Cheers

Re: Nick

I wished mine had some meaning too it. Unfortunately, it doesnt. I punched the keyboard, because I couldn't think of anything <img src=tongue.gif ALT=":b">

I then realised later, as red pointed out to me <img src=wink.gif ALT=""> that enep bears an uncanny resemblance to inept, which I failed to notice in my keyboard-punching folly <img src=biggrin.gif ALT="">

Re: Nick

just havta say, cool board, tho the long names are a bit hard to get used to, but oh well<img src=wink.gif ALT="">
I'm a Star Wars maniac and fully trained Sith. Labris is what my real family name means in greek, so i thought it's cool. Ana's my real name, and you can get from where i got 'the Sith' part from<img src=smile.gif ALT="">

I'm not depressed, no, I'm bad. No. I'm not bad, I'm terrible.</p>

My surname is Dagelur

Hello Dear Fellows! <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

I am a newcomer here and I am happy to see such fair folk in the virtual (but real) Middle Earth.

After beginning to read the LotR, i felt the need to choose a nickname...but not to take any name already existing in the story. I wanted to choose my own nickname, sounding &quot;Middle-Earth&quot;...and I chose DAGELUR, which is a partial anagram of my name and my Girlfriend's name in French.
This nickname was not chosen at random, for each set of 3 letters makes up another word or the beginning of an other word.

Then, in DAGELUR you can see:

DAG for DAGGER
AGE for AGE!
ELU (=ELECTED in French)
LUR for LURKING! (That's just for fun, I don't wish to embody any evil creature!)


I wish you all a good journey across Middle Earth and hope to meet you on, or outside the East Road.

Your Dagelur


</p>

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

Amyrlis (pronounced ah-meer-lis, with accent on meer) Dornathan. I made it up by adding some letters to my first &amp; middle names. I kind of wish that I would have picked something with true Tolkien meaning. All of yours are great! I've also been toying with changing it to the name of the Vanyar elf who Finrod loved yet left behind in Aman - I just noticed her name in the Sil - Amarie. Oh to be the only love of Finrod Felagund!

-amyrlis <Br>These are indeed strange days. Dreams and legends spring to life out of the grass. -Eomer</p>
