View Full Version : Your Quenya name!
Fri, 16th Apr '04, 4:41am
Here's (http://www.elvish.org/elm/names.html) an interesting little website. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and pick the letter that corresponds with the first letter of your (first) name.
Feel free to post with your Quenya names.
Sadly, my name's just too plain unusual to be there :( , so I have to find out what it means and then translate into Quenya...one day...
EDIT: And that day is come!! :spin: :rolling: :roll:
My name, *deleted*, is an alternate spelling of the Finnish name Jouko. Now, according to this website (http://www.behindthename.com/nm/j3.html), Jouko is the Finnish form of the name Jacob. Referring back to the Quenya name site, the Quenya name for Jacob is Encaitar.

I guess I'm Úmátimon!

I didn't like my Quenya name much.

Masha, russian diminutive form of Maria...
Apparently bitterness :( , so Sárie ---> Sárince or Sárelle.
Humph, nothing beats Lady Luthien :D

I'm Oitur or Ertur. Too short for me. I want at least three syllables in my elf names!
EDIT: with my middle names, I can be Nostarion or Calimbandil too. Much better!

I'm Mirime... strange.
my middle names are Calle Sáre Eruntale
Fri, 16th Apr '04, 11:25am
I quite like mine: marcarnildo. Got a nice ring to it. :)

My first name was not listed, but if I've interpreted their translation scheme correctly, it would be Alcaro or Alcaron.
My middle name did show up and was translated to Alco or Alcon.
So I guess my Quenya name would be either Alcaro Alcon or Alcaron Alco. :D
I find the alliteration interesting, considering that my real name is Rodney Ray.

My Quenya name is Poldon
Fri, 16th Apr '04, 6:33pm
Jürgen ---> Kememmótar or Kemmótar
intresting... sounds kinda nice but i still like my real name better. :p
Fri, 16th Apr '04, 8:24pm
Hmm, i think i like my Quenya name better!
Peter = Sardo or Ondo
Simple, but i like it :)
Man i wish i was an Elve....
Fri, 16th Apr '04, 8:39pm
hmmm... Niere or Nione. I kind of like it. ;)
Fri, 16th Apr '04, 9:00pm
I feel debased.
My name isnt part of that list... and its common enough. :cry:
But a quite similar name would be Mirimon or Leron in Quenya. Which sounds nice, so I am appeased.

My name is Wout, which comes from Wouter, which comes from Walter, so:
WALTER: Frankish Waldheri means something like "army-commander" (waldan "to rule", heri or hari "army, host"). Rimbe is the Quenya word for "host" - stem RIM. For "ruler, commander" we could use tur again, but cáno, cánu "ruler, governor, chieftain" is even better (UT:400). Thus Walter = Rimbecáno.

EMIL (m.) - from Latin 'rival'; cotumo "enemy", hence Cotumo itself
Sat, 17th Apr '04, 11:37am
NEIL, NEAL (m.) - perhaps Gaelic 'champion' or 'cloud'; aráto "champion, eminent man", lumbo "cloud", so Aráto or Lumbo as such
Champion/eminent man is cool, but cloud?
So Aráto it is.

MICHELLE (f.) - feminine form of MICHAEL (q.v.), thus Manveri
LOUISE (f.) - a fem. form of LOUIS (q.v.), thus Alcarohtare
JACK (m.) - a pet form of JOHN or JACOB (q.v.), thus Eruantalon or Eruntalon (for a difference could be used Eruantalo or Eruntalo), or Encaitar

Thijs from Matthijs from Mattias.
MATTHEW (m.) - Heb. 'gift of God'; Eru "God"; anna "gift", thus:
Eruanno or Erunno.

My name wasn't there, not even with the help of behindthename.com.
Sun, 18th Apr '04, 6:37pm
@MoN I happen to have the same name, Eek Eruanno it is such an ugly name...
Sun, 18th Apr '04, 10:45pm
mine is Poldon
EDIT: 50 posts, now i have the stupid lynx eye gem

"Úrambo" (perhaps shortened to "Rambo"??)

Right ... on both sites couldn't find my real name so I used my abbreviated (and more commonly used) name - Taf.
That wasn't in there, so I tried Taffy which was and is the closest to my name.
Taffy apparantly is the loving name given to people called David ... silly website!
CHecked it out on the Quenya website and it appears that David also means Lavir in Quenya
Lavir ... that sounds a bit girlie no for a man's name?

I. Am. IRONMAN!
Actually my name translates into Maneséro.
Tue, 20th Apr '04, 2:32pm
I hate mine. Erucolindo. I sound like a dodgy cheap magician :eek:
Hmmm, the name Tyler is suspiciously Telutan. Some form of primitive adimin?

Lavir Eruánion (David Jonathan) I like it! :D
Tue, 20th Apr '04, 9:23pm
Call me Úrambo.

Meldon, see NWHAGEN; some David adopted and adapted his name to Eldarin languages, so Lavir in Quenya and Dewidh in Sindarin
