I like Legolas Greenleaf (because it sounds so woodsy) and Merry and Pippin (because they sound so happy and British). The name Withywindle also strikes my fancy... It looks so funny and sort of reminds me of a Lewis Carroll poem.

My favorite names are Hithlum and Nan Dungortheb, because I can almost visualize the place when I say the names.

Hithlum sounds misty and wet, very hilly and green with oft grey skies and beautiful summers and springs.

Nan Dungortheb sounds very dark and dirty. I always imagine crags and spikes of rock and many dark passageways and shadowy corners.

This is hard, I can't just say one name that is my favourite. Tinúviel is though something so beautiful...and so is Caras Galadhon. Almost everything that is in Sindarin or Quenya is beautiful.

-Amarantha, obviously, is one of my favorites. I just found out there is an actual character named Amaranth (one of Frodo's aunts, I believe) but I like the 'a' at the end.

-Osgiliath...soooo fun to say

-Elessar (fairly popular, I see?)

-Elbereth Gilthoniel (fun to recite, too)

-Sauron is fun to say just for the 'au' sound

Pretty much anything in Elvish is fun to say... Dwarf stuff, too. I mean, just say Khazad-dum and you know what I'm talking about. Yeah...there's tons of them! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

I love Tolkien's languages, he was really good at making things sound perfect. Well, most things, at least. I really don't like the name Gandalf. But maybe that's just me. Oh, well, he's got lot's of other names, hasn't he.

You've all given wonderful examples of some of the most interesting or beuatiful names Tolkien gave his charecters, but I thought I might just add a few of my favorites too! ^-^
Lothiriel- Her name is just so pretty!
Celebrimbor- I just love the way his name sounds!
Artanis- Galadriel's father name is just so beautiful!
And finally my ultimate fave...
Ereinion- I know I can't pronounce it, but Gil-Galad's name LOOKS pretty! ^-^
Namaarie!

1420! Tongue rolling

I just love names that sort of "roll" off the tongue, and sound so ellegant. As someone already said, Osgiliath is really funny to say. Some of my others are...

Imrahil
Celeborn
Cirith Ungol
Minas Tirith
Iarwain-ben-adar
Ghan-Buri-Ghan, in fact all pukel-men talk lol, with the "woses," "pukel-men," and "gorgun" is just fun to say lol.
Ecthelion
Remmirath
Radbug (great name for an orc)
And most of the dwarf names are fun, oin, gloin, balin, fili, kili...etc

My all time favorite word would have to be....
Mount Taniquetil, just rolls off so beautifully.

1420! Aragorn, naaa, nicknames yes.

I don't care much for the name "Aragorn," but it's his nicknames I like. Mentioned above, Thorongil is a good one, Elessar, Telcontar, Estel. Bill Ferny insulted him call him Stick-at-naught Strider, which is one of my favorite insult names lol.

Any of the orc names, Radbug, Lugdush, Ugluk, Grishnakh, Snaga.
Tharkun
Tarks

When I think of more I will get back to you lol.

As I think the first poster said, Gildor Inglorion is truly a wonderful name. Other names/words I like are Bauglir, Laurelindorinan, Eressea, and let's not forget alallalallarumbalindorkamandaburume! (Entish for "hill") I think I've got it right, anyway; I'm going on memory here!

But if I was Bernard Hill I would make everyone call me Mr. Alallalalla etc. just to irritate them! Bah-hah!

I like the sound of Rohan, Mirkwood (sounds creepy) Minas Morgul, Stoors, Isildur, nazgul, fangorn and the westmarch. Mostly because they are all very original names and not at all typical of ordinary fantasy tales. I myself have thought of many middle-earth type names but none compare to those mentioned. I think the place names in the shire could be more original, such as "old forest"!
