Pipe Bad television, I salute thee

My head was feeling crowded, so I had to be democratic. It's a shame we can't embed those awful sound effects from Family Fortunes into the posts. Or is it?

Anyway, without further ado, and, like a young Polonius, shunning procrastination and prolixity, distilling the post down to its barest essentials and leaving not a word in place that does not in some way bear upon the subject at hand; pushing, indeed, the limits of brevity to the borders of terseness, I shall proceed to set before you the next question.

Valaróma

1: The constellation which we call Ursa Minor
2: The name of a temple in Kôr
3: Oromë's hunting horn
4: Tolkien's word for red cabbage

Palantir-Green

I am pretty sure it is not a ship!
It does not sound like a dwarven name and I really do not remember any scarlet birds! But then again I have not read or talked about anything Tolkien related for a very long time.

That leaves me with a month and a mother. . .

I am guessing Mother of a King.

It just sounds more like a name than a month to me.

I am sure it is not the son of Mim. (man I will be embarased if that is the right one)

My guess will be an Elven script. Was it not the one that was invented in Doriath and used alot by dwarves ?

The script you think of is probably Cirth aka Runes.
