Whats in a name?

I chose Amandil as I am hopelessly addicted to the Silmarillion in its various forms. &quot;Lover of Aman&quot; seemed appropriate for one stuck in the Elder Days.

Re: Whats in a name?

My name comes from an old Rebetika song, probably brought to Greece by refugees from Asia Minor. Nothing to do with LOTR, but its one of my favourite songs and I thought the name sounded LOTRish.
Incidentally, Coprophage7, do you know what YOUR name means in Greek?

Re: What is in a name?

I picked my name because it is an ancient Greek name for a ruler, and the matt part because it is my name. The reason I picked this name because it relates to my website, www.geocities.com/hegemonmatt/locke.html, go there!

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

I chose Halbarad &quot;dour handed Ranger of the North&quot; because he was (from what I can tell) the lieutenant of Aragorn, which means he must have been held in high regard by Aragorn. He died protecting the standard of the high king and thus deserves to be remembered.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

I stumbled on this name in Lost Tales 2, and it got stuck in my mind, even though it is at least a year ago I read it. I think it is appropriate to my character.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

The reason for my nickname?......I think that it was just some obscure reference or combination of obscure references
that came to me about 3-4 years ago. There is also a Middle Earth reference to it. Commodore is a naval rank, and
the one Middle Earth culture that is best known for their
navy....Just check the last part of my sig. (Although they're more like a pirate fleet).

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

Actually,looks like you took the name he wanted. He had to add an extra &quot;i&quot;. I basically chose Inziladûn because Númenor is my chief ME interest,and I always admired him.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

Welcome, Estel.

Your name sounds very similar to the Spanish for Evenstar... am I right?

I chose Elanor because I wanted a female name, I like hobbits, and I have golden hair. And of course, I would love to have Sam as a dad...

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

You are absolutely right. i also chose this name because I wanted a female name and because her hair really reminds me of a very special person in my life. About Hobbits I must admit that I have always been most fond of the Elven kind but no one better than a hobbit to have lots of fun.

Re: What is in a name?

Glorfindel was the one who prophesied that the Witch king of Angmar would not be slain by a mortal man. :-) He was also the one who appeared as a shining light whn Frodo crossed the ford near Imladris. Good choice elf lord

New to the Barrow Downs

Hello all. Relatively new to the on-line Tolkien crowd. Chose Maglor because of all of the open-ended character lines in Tolkien's works, I find Maglor's to be the saddest and most intriguing.

When thinking about who is the greatest elven resident of Middle Earth, it is natural to drift to Galadriel, Cirdan and especially Elrond. But remember that Maglor, alone of Feanor's children, still wanders the lands in forlorn exile. In theory, with the passing of Galadriel to Aman, he would likely be Middle Earth's mightiest resident.

I can't help but point out to you, Maglor, our finest collection of fan fiction by the renowned Mithadan called Tales from Tol Eressea. I think you will find it intriguing, considering your most recent post here. Enjoy!! Here is a link directly to it.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

My nickname is just my all-purpose computer and internet nickname (if you see a kayqy around, it's probably me!<img src=smile.gif ALT=""> ) I got it while randomly typing keys and then adjusting until I liked it, back in middle school. Kay happens to be part of my middle name, and Qy (rhymes with sky), well, I like the letter Q. I also like it's uniqueness. I thought about a LotR nickname (like maybe Estel), but I'd rather be consistent.

Nickname

I chose eldar because that is the Quenya word for elves, who I personally want to be, and who are the greatest creatures ever. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

I chose the fourteen at the end because that was the lucky number that Bilbo was in <u>The Hobbit: or There and Back Again</u>.

I chose Theodred because it sounds pretty cool, also because Theodred sounded like a really great fighter, and it was a pity that he was slain during the battles of the Fords of Isen.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not whither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken:
The crownless again shall be king.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

I play Nori in an AOL RPG thingie (AOL is very evil, if you did not know), and NoriDwarf was taken as a screen name. So the next thing that popped into my head was &quot;NoriBeard&quot;. He's been a great character to play as, especially because Tolkien gave little to no information about him, and I was free to develop him into whatever I wanted.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

Well, I'm new here, and my nickname isn't Tolkien orientated, but I love it just the same.
For my GCSE English coursework, I wrote a story, well, actually a short novel (Never been very good at keeping to word limits!). Anyway, it was a fantasy story, where the herorine was based on myself. Hey, I can dream! When I joined my first Tolkien message board, I didn't want to take a Tolkien name, as most of them seemed to have been used, so I used Anriel. My first few hundred posts were in a role play i started, and the name still reminds me of all the friends I made through that and the good time we had.
In my story, Anriel meant &quot;Child of the Stars&quot;, and her/my surname, Mendereth, meant Guardian.

Re: What is the reason for your nickname ?

I chose Beregond because I always liked the part where Pippin is in Minas Tirith, and besides, all the others were taken <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Nick Names

I looked at the possible names that applied to me for hobbit and elven names. My hobbit name came up as Robbin Banks of Woody End. That was cute, but I tried the elven names and they came up like Eventheltheith, or something to that effect. So I merged 2 and came up with Evenspire. It means nothing whatsoever in elvish, but I brake it into Ev-enspire

Re: Nick Names

I love Sam in the books because he is steadfast. Also Tuor was taken darn it! <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

"Good Morning!" said the dragon. "You seem surprised."
"Good Morning! said Farmer Giles. "I am that!"

Re: Nick Names

Funny, I wanted Tuor too, it was taken when I got my I.D. too <img src=frown.gif ALT="">

...he heard Theodred's great voice cry "To me, Eorlingas!"</p>
