Hooky...Now you can just put "Formendacil" as the slogan, and everyone will know what you're talking about. And at least Formy will think it's hilarious.



And congratulations to all the new Personally Titled! May you have many happy days thinking about them.

It may have been years ago, I can still remember what it was like to get my own PT.

It feels special to finally be chosen. (Please tell me I wasn't the only one jumping up and down and screaming for joy )

Congrats everyone. I'm enjoying reading all these new titles.

Of course you can never abandon your froggie avatar now Congratulations.

Is Meela's new or just something we have all known for a long time?

Really can't wait to see what Ang has chosen - I can't imagine he hasn't been included in this batch.... of course to a Fenris Wolf such as myself he is THE Fenris Wolf - eldest of our order.....

Thanks, Mith and Lhuna. Credit must also go to Elempi, who played a crucial role in convincing me to follow my amphibious tendencies.

My eight favorite personal titles -


  • The Barrow-Wight's "Night in Wight Satin". He changed this about the time I was listening to that song nonstop.
  • Hookbill the Goomba's "Alive without breath". It's so obviously Tolkien, you might not think of that as LotR yet when you see it, it's so obviously LotR and Barrow-downish as well.
  • Hilde Bracegirdle's "Relic of Wandering Days". It bespeaks of depth and history, very like LotR I think.
  • A tie between Dancing Spawn's "Mischevious Candle" Kalimac's "Candle of the Marshes", and Symestreem's "Face in the Water", because "The Dead Marshes" is one of the awesomest chapters in LotR.
  • Lalwendë's "A Mere Boggart". It's cool.
  • Almost forgot Kitanna's "Child of the West". Reminds me of Thorin's deathbed speech, when he called Bilbo "Child of the kindly West".

You might also appreciate Kalimac's "Candle of the Marshes." One of my favorites. Alas, it's been far too long since Kalimac graced this board.

I love all the new PTs, but my favorite of the bunch has to be Meela's. No one else could have that PT.

If our beloved Barrow-Wight would see the deletion of my personal title as a possibility, I'd have nothing against you taking it in my stead some day. I've developed somewhat of a distaste for labelling myself. 'Untitled' seems the best title I can think of anymore.

Because it is one of my all-time faves.

Not that I have anything against Rune , but it just wouldn't be the same if it belonged to someone else. :/

Very strange, I was thinking here and I thought that it has no relation at all with Eminem! Or does the word "shady" nowadays refer to a rapper?

While looking over Brin's nice list there I'm reminded of how much I like Mister Underhill's "Dread Horseman."

How does one get around to choosing a personal title? I can't decide on one!

Well in Noldorian terms choosing a PT is Essecilme and if you can not decide I would sugest waiting since it is unchangeable. You will surely know the right one when it occurs (lámatyáve) - yep I have been reading Morgoth's ring again... .


For myself, when I daydreamed of what I would choose, I knew I wanted a quotation since I was a literature student and my screen name does not lend itself to some of the superb puns that some people have and I did not have the wit to think of someof the ones that reference Tolkien like "Drummer in the Deep" or "Alive without breath" which is just so perfect for a wight!!! I did want a supernatural element too so I ended up with short list of 3 one of which was taken (and it is much more appropriate for it's holder). So it was either Pilgrim Soul or Bewildering Ghost. The latter more accurate, the former more aspirational. I could almost translate Pilgrim soul into Elvish but didn't incase it wasn't an accurate translation. Pretentious and ungrammatical is a bad combination..... I try to limit myself to one or the other at any given time.....

So basically, try to find something that means something to you, or amuses you and which you live with for the rest of your death (in a manner of speaking).

Thanks for your help, Mith.

Would it be illegal for me to ask here what people thought of a few titles I was considering?

Ah. I should go find that said Personal Title thread and do it there. I just didn't know where I could get some help. I'm occasionally bad at making decisions like this.

Thanks, Glirdan.

Oh, oh, oh! I would ask everyone to please not suggest any more titles for me - please! But, Gil, I have to thank you for inspiring something beautiful. I've thought of something that I shall turn over in my head as carefully as the first two I had already thought of.
