The Eye

"Shoulder Blades"...really! Raefindel, what will we do with you? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Mine is named Bragolfin, which is what I got when I put "Isis" into the name generator, but it also means "Sudden Hair"

If I don't captialize Isis, however, I get Belegtur, which (possibly redundantly) means "Mighty Powerful"

By the way, I'm not making these translations up; I got them out of the word thingy in the back of the Silm.

What was Elric of Melnibone's sword named? Stormbringer, I think?
Which, is a cool name, no doubt, but is kind of odd when you think about it. I mean, it's sort of like naming your sword, "Severe Tropical Depression", or "Unstable Air Mass".

Beware! Or you shall face the wrath of Strato-Cumulous!!!"
"Ere... wot kind of toff name is that then, eh?"

I would name my sword "Dragon Claw".
Or "Eddie"
It could go either way.

I would name my sword after the elvish-name of my long-suffering character in the Return of the Entish Bow RP series, Andotiruves, which in English means "The Gatekeeper". The elvish sounds so much more impressive and mysterious.

EDIT: For those who want to come up with a real elvish name instead of depending on the name-generator, there is a pretty good English-to-Elvish Dictionary here. Ram a couple of good words together and see what you can come up with.

I thought of another name, along the lines of the original Slice-And-Dice:
The Ronco Orc-O-Matic!!
It slices, it dices, it even makes little julienne Orc-fries!

I've often toyed with naming my sword after the one that belongs to Geirmund Thunder in Laxdla Saga. Ftbtr, 'Leg-biter': says it all really. If I were feeling self-referential I'd call it Wylkynsion, but as it is it has no name.

Alchil or Alchilien which is what the name generator gave me for "Ice Queen"

Hmmm... No matter what I named my sword it would be called 'Hunny' anyways. I can imagine the scenario now..

*Does cool spinny thing with sword*
"Alright Hunny, let's do this!" >_<

What was the name of the sword worn by Michael Moorcock's character, Elric of Melnibone? Stormbringer? Good name.
Originally, it was translated as "Low Pressure Cell", which doesn't carry nearly the cache as Stormbringer.

One of the more amusing points in my Lord of the Rings fan life was whilst I was reading FotR for the first time. My friend TheGreatElvenWarrior was talking to me about something and mentioned Frodo's sword. I distinctly remember asking "So what was the sword called? I bet it's something pathetic like Sting . . . ". Yes, I actually said that. TheGreatElvenWarrior thought this was hilarious and finally revealed to me that this in fact the sword's name and I was appalled. I never DID like that name. . .

'The Dragon Disseverer' would have been much better. But then why would anyone want to dissever a dragon? Perhaps 'The Radish Ripper' then. Or even better: 'The Slug Severer', slugs are far worse than Sauron - everyone knows that.
