Belegorn is the 4th Steward of Gondor. I forgot why I chose it, but it means Mighty Tree in Sindarin.

Turns out I haven't replied on this thread.

Aganzir means death love in Adnaic. I had an RPG character by that name when I was 14-ish, which is also when I started frequenting forums and chatrooms. The character was left behind long ago but the name stuck, and it's still very appropriate for me.

Read Gollums poem Alive without breath which ends with the lines (with emphasis by me):
We only wish
to catch a fish
               so juicy-sweet!
For the whole poem, see http://forum.barrowdowns.com/showpos...5&postcount=18

Pretty much self-explanatory. Though, I'm not entirely sure why I chose Galadriel when my favourite character is Maglor. Maybe it was my attraction to Lrien.

You misunderstand. I was just referring to fish being juicy, not sweet, & not denying that Gollum referred to fish as juicy-sweet. I probably should have said, "they may be juicy..."

So I was googling my screenname (because is there anything better you can do on a Monday night, no? - and because a presumably Slovakian person has adopted my name for video games and I like to stalk them occasionally) and found a crackpot book about Sumerian gods and aliens. Apparently Anganzir = first night, first darkness; and Agenzer (darkness) and Ganzir (the world of the dead) were derived from it.

Not complaining.

Hey cool thread!

Okay, my name has nothing to do with Lotr. But with a very beautiful prose poetry/philosophy book called "The Prophet" by the Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran. I am neither Lebanese nor a follower of the Islamic faith, but I was given the book by a friend.
It is very melancholic and beautiful, the titular Prophet Almustafar has lived in the city of Orphalese for many years and prepares to return to his home. On the way to his ship, he discusses philosophy with a group of people.
To me it always seemed the "journey home" of Almustarfar was a metaphor for his death and he tried to impart his wisdom on others before passing on.

I also fell in love with the name Orphalese and want to use it as a name for a city, somewhere, somehow.
Orphalesion cam from Orphalesian (which I presumed a citizen of Orphalese would be called in modern English, though Orphalesan would have also worked) and then changed the a into an o for aesthetic reasons.
Theoretically it could be semi Quenya/Sindarin for "son of Orphalese"

Tolkien

When I was young, I was playing some of those classic stock Windows games on a 98, and when I finished a game, it asked me to put in a name. I randomly hit the keyboard and Jex appeared. That stuck with me.
The circumflex e is used in Welsh (uncommon) and is a long, stressed e, like in air.

Tar, as we know, was the prefix used for kings of Nmenor, and my personality matches that of a leader/dictator, so I decided that it was fitting in the context of Tolkien.

I picked this name for no particular reason, really. No deeper meaning behind it. I probably just liked the way it sounds and was in a hurry.

It's just my radio name. It sounds cool.
Feel a bit left out! Everyone else has some well thought out elvish name or something
