Welcome to the plaza, Tegalad.
Fëanor is of course well-known, but Tulcakelume is Quenya. I don’t  understand Tegalad, so could you please explain this name?

Well my name is Abbie or Abigail. Abigail means "father is joyful" but just "Joyful" works too.  I looked at one of those name genorators but I don’t think it was right. It said my name was Idril but it said the same thing for my sister annie. and her names means "grace" which you would think is ironic if you knew her

Hm.. names.. I’ve had three plaza names so far, and only one of them means something.
Merilruin- I got it off of our very own Rivindell page (http://www.lotrplaza.com/elves/elvishnames.asp) and "Meril" means "rose", and "Ruin" means "fire red." it’s sorta interesting. I have names on other sites, such as Silhîthiel meaning glitter mist daughter, and Tinnumir meaning twilight jewel.

Hmmm If Im not mistaken in arwen bla bla bla.com (I forgot) my name Luke is also called tegalad which means wisdom if I’m not mistaken

Tegalad, obviously you are referring to arwen-undomiel.com, where they say that Luke means ’Bringing light’ which they translate as Tegalad .
Though Sindarin calad (lenited galad) actually means "light", the element **te cannot be recognized as "bringing".
There is a Sindarin verb "to bring" from the root TUK- (infinitive tegi, 3rd person singular tôg "he brings", active participle togel  "bringing"), but **te does not seem to make sense.

I forgot where i got mine, but  my elvish name is Ficadno Palantir. Interesting, though, since the palantiri are objects... *BONUS!* my name in Hawaiian is Keacka.

Ficadno is not "elvish", in case you are actually taking about Tolkien’s Elvish languages.

Most of the name-generators are not to be trusted, as they use some random code to pluck out bits of words and stick them together in a mess that sounds like it could be Elvish, but which really does not mean anything.  Arwen_Undomiel.com is fairly accurate, because at least some effort was made to track down the meanings of names and actually find out the Sindarin translation.  If you want a good translation, go to babynames.com and type in your name to find its meaning, and then ask someone at the translation desk to put the name together for you, or you can look up the words on Dragonflame (the Sindarin Dictionary Project) and try to put the name together yourself, and then have someone at the translation desk check it for you.

My username is a Sindarin translation of my real name, meaning "Noble Strength."  I say "a" and not "the" translation, because there are different options concering word order and synonyms, and so there are several ways to translate my name.  The Arwen_Undomiel translation was Tuarwen (strength+noble+lady).  I settled with Arvellas (noble+strength).  The main different is in the words for strength, "bella" versus "tu."  "Bella," or in my case, "vella," since the consonant was mutated, is defined on Dragonflame as "physical strength."  "Tu" refers more specifically to muscle, sinew, and vigour.  I decided that "bella," being more general, covered more aspects of strength, and was the one I prefered.

My real-life name, Caitlin, is a variation of Katherine. Both mean "pure."

My Elvish name, Celebeth Anoriel, I put together myself using bits of Sindarin I picked up over the course of my life as an LotR fan. It comes from celeb, meaning "silver," beth, "word," anor, "sun," and iel, which I’m not sure what it means but it shows up at the end of a lot of female names.

My name is Celebrimbor which translates into ’Silver-fist’ in the Sindarin tongue, although it is derived from the Quenya name Telperinquar. Celebrimbor was the grandson of Feanor, and the Lord of Eregion in the Second Age. It was he who crafted the Three Elven Rings of Power.

Welcome to the Plaza first off and my name is really Francesca Vella and Pansy Bolger is my name translated in hobbit, to suit my kingdom! But my real name, Francesca, means freedom (in latain) and my surname is Vella which means wind sail (in italian taken from ’ Vela’). But also My nick name Kikka (in habbit it is Primula) means grain, small (in Greek) I hope I am not going out of point, I tend to do that alot *g*

My real name is Melissa, which means "bee". What a thrilling meaning! The first part of my username, Nieriel, is Melissa in Sindarin acording to arwen-undomiel.com and the second part, Eleniel, is "star" in sindarin, again accordin to arwen-undomiel.com
Thay both seem to be accurate from what little sindarin I know.

Eleniel is actually Quenya. The Q word for "star" is elen, Sindarin would be êl  or gîl.
Nieriel seems to be Qenya, since the word nier is only attested in this early form of the language, as far as I know.
I really wonder why people still trust the arwen-undomiel translations.

Eglagaladiel is "maiden of forsaken light". Egla + galad, and feminine. Pretty simple!

I did get it out of a name generator, so it certainly isn’t a translation of my RL name. I only found out what it meant after I joined the Plaza and asked. lol But it suits me just fine anyway!

 My name is Malcor which has no real translation in Sindarin, but that is my last name, my real name is Dolgon Malcor, son and true heir to Turgon, Adan of Gondolin, High King of the Noldor until his death in FA 511.  (sorry i get carred away sometimes)

 Dolgon translates to "Head Power".

I haven’t bothered to translate my real name into elvish or dwarvish or anything, but my Plaza name roughly means "Wordsmith". "Curu-" meaning "skilled", and "Beth-" meaning "word". "-ion", of course, is a suffix tacked onto male names..."Curubeth" just didn’t have that ring to it.

My true first name means "Bright-fame" while my last refers to the area of a cemetary where paupers were barried; I figured this is indicative of my future in the field of comics, either become famous or forgotten. As to how my name my translate into anything Middle-earthish, best I could assume is that my last would have some connection to wights, although unlikely. Wight-acre? The Barrow-downs!

Something wight-ish...it would have to be something dealing with the Northern Kingdoms, since the wights in the story were connected with Angmar and Carn Dum, IIRC.

I feel stupid, I don’t remember the Elvish word for ’heaven’. I have a vague idea, but I don’t recall. Anyway, my first name, Roxanne, is something along the lines of Elgalad, which sounds awfully masculine, if you ask me.

Is there a way to make manly names more feminine but with the same meaning? You know, like Christopher and Christine or Joseph and Josephine?

Nieriel Eleniel 17/Jul/2006 at 06:19 PM
Fletcher of Lothlorien Points: 1697 Posts: 854 Joined: 04/Jul/2006

Sorry, I’m not sure. Heaven as in skies or as in a place with God, angels, etc? in the first case, Elrond is star-dome, which seems a poetic version of skies, heavens. Otherwise I don’t know, sorry. I’m not sure there is an elvish word - the nearest equivalent to the Christian heaven is, I would say, Valinor.
To make a name more feminine, i think you can add wen (maiden) or iel (daughter).

Nieriel Eleniel, the names are Quenya, apart from nier, as I said above. As there is no Quenya word for "bee", the use of Qenya is probably the sole alternative.

Arieda Rushlight: If I don’t remember an Elvish word, which happens quite frequently, I look it up in a dictionary
’Roxanne’ seems to be a variant of "Roxana", the Latin form of a Persian name meaning "dawn".
BTW, it might be helpful to specify whether you are taking about Sindarin or Quenya (or another Elvish language).

Aelindis, I’m sorry, I don’t have a dictionary at my disposal. Roxanne does mean ’dawn’, but I was thinking of my middle name as well. I have no clue what ’dawn’ is in Elvish, so I didn’t bother mentioning it. My middle name means something along the lines of ’heavenly light’, hence wondering what ’heaven’ was.

My name used to be Aklarien, which is roughly approximate to "Gloria", from aglar, glory, which appears in some of the elven hymns. My current name I and my Mistress (Tarín) just like the sound of.

My real name, if I translated it directly into Elvish, would probably be "Silwen".

i never liked my real name very muchwhen i was still small, because nobody could remember it or pronounce it properly, only when i started to read northern mythology i found out, that my name "gudrun" has quite a lot of possible meanings. "gud" might come from "god/ gôt" meaning of course our christian God, "run" from "rune" - whitch i think is quite clear -  stands for the secret sign, a rune or just a mystery.

but there is also an other meaning for my name, whitch i like even more. "gud" can also come from germanic "gund/gunt", meaning war (in modern french it is still "la guerre"), so that my name might stand for "a secret sign of war".

*hm* Well, this intruiged me... I just had to look my name up!

My name is Elenor (yes, I’m a swede so the spelling is kinda weired for some of you I guess) and according to this site I’ve been at the name either come from the roman name "Aliénór", wich somehow is born from some arabic name meaning "God is my light". Well, that’s boring.
So I’ve desided to adopt the other suggestion! That the name origins from the greek name "Helena", meaning "torch". Nothing very funny about the either. Well well. I deffinetley resembles "light" in some way, devine sort of! That’s cool. =D

But...how the heck am I supposed to translate that..? Chew on that one, language knowers! *mowahahaha!*
Please...? ;P

Celebhen, as there is no S or Q word for "torch", you’ve got several options:
1. You may take into account that Helena possibly comes from Greek selene, "moon".
2. You may simply use one of the numerous words for "light".
3. Given the etymology of English "torch" from Latin torqua, "something twisted", and the definition "a burning stick of resinous wood or twist of tow used to give light and usually carried in the hand" (Merriam-Webster) you may want to create your name via these pointers. Maybe something like "flaming wooden wand" or "flaming twisted rope" ? 
Sindarin  vocabulary is available.

According to the Barrowdowns the root for my Elvish name is Himhil. I’m not sure what that means. And Orcish is  Snikdúsh the Horrible. I don’t know why, but that made me laugh a lot.

My name (as in my personal name that I made, not generated by... er, generators) is Linwen. Occasionally Lindalewen, but mostly Linwen. Lindalewen sounds more fluid, but I’ve been known as Linwen for longer.

Yush.

Særima Hliehhan is literally Old English for "Coast Laugh". I was going more for a name that meant "Laughter of the Sea", but sea is "brim" and I wanted something more aesthetically (sp?) pleasing to mine eyeballs. I used Old English because I wanted to join the Rohirrim, and I read somewhere in their kingdom that Rohirric is taken from Old English partially (or at least I think I read that...I could be making it up).

My real name, Kathryn, means pure (my mother says Kathryn is the Welsh spelling).

eidorb: I entered my name, which means ’Gift of God’ ’Follower of Dionysius’ and got Angrod Súrion which means ’Iron Champion’ ’Son of the Wind’ in an amalgamation of two different Elvish languages.

Also, Mablung means ’Heavy Handed’ but when I looked at the meaning of your first name I found different accounts saying your name might mean Ditch, Muddy Place, or Second Son...

Name generators normally give a random compound of pre-existing Elvish name elements... while some Gondorians were named after heroes of old, e.g. Húrin and Beren, Elves did not take a name that was already in use... so you wouldn’t find 20 or 30 Mablungs running around... there was a Mablung who was captain of the guard of Doriath after Beleg, and there was a Ranger under Faramir with that name as well.

My name is Ariethil Ruá Orlërretyna which goes like this:

Ari = Silver   Ethil= Wing;  

Ruá = Star  Orlë = Guild Of   rretyna = The Heavens

 

SIlverWing Guild of  The heavens…….So I use my first name Ariethil, often others have shortened it to Ari. I think here is the only place I have used the entire name other then in charater developing. Hope it is intresting and sort of easy on the tongue.

My name is Kelly, which apparently comes from Gaelic for either ’war/strife’ or ’bright-headed’.

The best way I could translate that (it’s my first time of trying) was galdôl for light-head, I might be way off though. I’ve also seen it be given the meaning of warrior, which I guess would be maethoriell in Sindarin?

My surname means ’desires protection’ for which I came up with aníratinith (using guard instead of protection)

I have no idea how accurate those are, but hopefully not too bad for a first try.

Maethoriell Aníratinith - a warrior(ess) desiring protection?

My name, Nolofinwe, means "magic skill". Nolofinwe is also the name of finwe’s son, Fingolfin, in the Quenda language. It is a little confusing but, the translation has alot to do with magic and skill so I just said magic skill. It could also be magic skill of finwe, but I don’t know.

@ Tyrhael - I am not sure except that it was a link that helped create Elvish names. I formed this name a year ago and never once put it out until now. So no I really don’t know if the name exists in D&D or the forgotten realms. If it does and you have seen my name else where,  please tell me, I would like to see it in a story or at least a mention of said name.

Yes I did use such a sight as the one you have shown me, Tyrhael. But I still couldn’t make heads or tales of the true root of my name be it Sindarin or not. I know that I just like it lol.

Many names here are wonderful and the meanings tell a lot about the one who carries it.

    My name, Lewys is the welsh variation of Lewis and I hate it when people spell my name with an’i’.
    It means ’great warrior’ according to some welsh baby-name books which suits my character like a hand into a shoe.  All of my name is welsh so I’m really proud not to have a full welsh name.

Neidr Wen: Well, other etymologies I have seen derive Lewys from Llewellyn, and Llewellyn from Brythonic Lugobelinus ’brilliant light’. Yet another site linked it to the Welsh word for ’lion’. Is either of those meanings more acceptable to you?

Well, Brenna is a Celtic name that means "raven haired maiden"; which is good, being that my hair is almost black!  As far as translating it into another language, I haven’t  a clue! Maybe one of my lovely Fanatic family members can help me out on that! I do love the name, and it describes me perfectly.

Eru, "god".
lastannen : Either past (passive) participle or 1st person past tense of  lasta- , "to listen".
Your real name might be ’Samuel’ (possible meaning: "God has heard"), though the Sindarin translation does not seem to be correct.

Maybe: atar ná quanta alassëa "father is full of joy", eruanna/erulissë/lissë "grace", aini melmëo "holy one f. / [in the early Qenya lexicon]: (pagan) goddess of love". There does not seem to be a word for "plate".
(The Quenya experts may have better suggestions though.)

My name is Gildor Ingoldrin. Gildor is made up of Gil which means star but and Dor which means land.however ingoldrin is translated to the son of inglor - inglor is the name given to Finrod in the silmarilion.
Aelindis 14/Oct/2006 at 08:44 AM
Elder of Imladris Points: 1987 Posts: 916 Joined: 18/Dec/2004
Gildor rather seems to be a compound of gîl + taur: "Star-king", t- being lenited to d-, -au- becoming -o- as in many other cases.
"Son of Inglor" would translate to Inglorion.
The name Ingold appears several times in Tolkien’s writings. It was the name of a man of Minas Tirith (LotR), and at a certain development stage of LotR this name replaced Aragorn /Elfstone (cf. HoME 7: 277).
Ingoldo was the mother-name of Fingolfin, of Finrod Felagund and of Finarfin at different times.
I don’t quite understand the word formation that would yield ?Ingoldrin meaning ?"son of Ingoldo".

I actually chose something from the Arwen_Undomiel.com site, not a name that has to do with my real name (couldn’t find anything with that meaning). So I have no idea if my name is accurate. I just chose it because I liked the sound and meaning of it (well as you see it are actually 2 names).
If anyone knows if my names are accurate or not, please let me know.

By the way, where is the link to the translation centre on this site?

Silima is the material that Fëanor invented of which to make the Silmarilli, and vanya means "fair" (as in light-coloured, pale) or "beautiful". They are both Quenya words. Translation and transcription requests are handled at the Translation Desk, which is pinned to the top of the threads in the Language forum.

Funny thing about my name (Lindsay) is that it is a Scottish Surname the way it is spelled and it means Lincon swamp. My name is crazy but you should see the rest of my name. My middle name is Aster as in the flower and my last name (Correa) means leather or dog collar in spanish. So I like my name because it fits together (Lindasy Aster Correa) so if you put the meanings together then you get Lincon Swamp flower dog collar. weird huh? Oh and my plaza name means love in another language that begins with an A but I cannot recall it.

 Alrightie- Turien is elvish for  something close toNicholas, which is the male version of Trelaweth, which is Nicole, my name. Silverleaf, of course, indicates that I am part of the Silverleaf clan, Arien’s daughter. I made up Turien from Trelaweth, which was too long to fit into the name box for while. My old last name, Mallos, was the name of a small white Gondorian flower.

So together combined both ’Styxa’ and ’@89’ will be ’Styxa@89’ means Daruk Ugluk, the proud Uruk’s rat in Mordor. My name founded in Mordor The Land Of Shadow.

My plaza name is Migstyx. The word ’Migstyx’ is named as Shakgriig, the hammer , one of the Uruk in Mordor. My real name is Migstyx Ng Ken Liang. ’Migstyx Ng’ means Barash, the bloated  and ’Ken liang’ means Craklash, the whip . So combined all will be ’Migstyx Ng Ken Liang’ is Barash Craklash, the bloated whip.

My Plaza name is, of course, Morgil. It is Sindarin for "Dark Star". I came up with the name back in the middle 1980’s when my best friend and I started playing Iron Crown Enterprises’  Middle-earth Role Playing game. I put a bit of history in the character. Morgil was born on the elves’ journey to Beleriand from the east. His father forsaw that a darkness (Morgoth) would arise and the elves would be the proverbial light to stand against it.

I chose Norin Deathfoot because it is the nicest name that came out of the barrowdowns name generator when I put bits of my name in

My plaza name’s NineFingered, which means just what it says, in honor of Frodo the NineFingered. Just because once a horse bit my finger and for a brief second I thought I would end up with 9 fingers, but fortunaealy he let go and my pretty finger was saved, though it was bruised. A very heroic deed, indeed!

My plaza name is Araneg, which is sindarin. In the sindarin language it can either mean Small King or Thorn King (yeah I know two completely different things) depending on the translation. I chose it because it most closely identifys with my actual name Ryan which is an Irish name.

My name’s not really from Middle Earth; I tried my name in the Elven Name Translatour and didn’t like what it came up with. Miriath comes from Miralas, which is taken off from Legolas.  Pretty weak, I know, but that’s where I got the idea for my name from. But, if I had my own language, I’d put it to mean something like, "Guardian of the Ocean or Sea."

My Plaza name, Lauregil, means ’golden star’ from ’laure’ meaning ’golden-colored’ and ’gil’ a variation of ’el’ meaning ’star’. In the back of my library’s copy of Silmarillion is a list of some elvish words and their meanings; that’s where I got the name.

Names, names, names...always an interesting topic. My real name is Karis, but I created the name Ziranphel from Adunaic, the language of men. Ziran means "beloved", and phel means "daughter." As the eldest daughter in my family, I claim this as my name. Karis Ziranphel’s family has passed down the name to each eldest daughter of the clan. One of my NPCs Tirlyn Ithilphel is thus "moonsdaughter".

My name is Ashlee, which translates into Lithornlant in Sindarin and Lithoniel in Quenyan. It goes to show how similar the two elvish languages are.  To Karis, I can also claim the name Ziranphel, but I’ll leave it to you. I go by Alannah, which means beloved angel, but that’s just plain Irish.

 Hey Alannah/outtafitz836. Do you mean you are eldest daughter, or did you also think up the name on your own? I guess I said I ’claim’ Ziranphel because no one else had come up with it before, and now I use that as my name everywhere, even off-plaza. My trademark in a way.
Welcome to the Plaza, and I hope to see you around.

As you all can see, my name is Mithgrothwen.  That’s what the barrowdowns gave me way back when I first joined the Plaza.  I eventually figured out it means "grey delving maiden" in Quenya, I believe.

My name isn’t Elvish or in any other Tolkien related language... I just like it *g* phonoaesthetics, you see. But to Elves that’d be okay, if you were Noldo, anyway... children of the Noldor get to name themselves when they’re capable of lámatyáve, which is, basically, phonoaesthetics - pleasure in the sounds and forms of words. But if I were to translate my RL name, I suppose it would be something like Silwen. As it is I used to live in Elfland and be called Aklarien, which means Gloria, sort of.

Why do you want to know? Anyway I’m sure you have no evil plan in mind...my plaza name is quite obviously Losille. I was told this means "rose" in Sindarin but this could be wrong as the source is something less that reliable! (In other words my best friend...) In real life my name is Roisin, the diminutive form of the Irish Gaelic "Rois" meaning rose, hence the Losille thing. Original, huh!

<Lang Mod edit>: ’Why do you want to know’? I have no idea who started this topic; it surely wasn’t me. But it’s progressed to members just posting about their name and/or meaning without answering someone’s ’question’; I’m not even sure if there was an original question other than an open floor for members to give their reasoning and/or meaning for their username.
