What web-site do I speak of? It's called "the Council of Elrond." It's an incredible resource for any serious fan of Tolkien and I'm going to have to book mark it and make myself walk away so I can get other things done today. *sigh*
Now - what is in a name? One of the fun resources that this web-site has is a name finder, where you can find your name in the two main elvish languages (Sindarin and Quenya), or in Rohirric (the language of Rohan). You'll need to use the root of your name, so Mandy become Amanda, and I used my real name (Ruth) instead of the nickname most people know me by (Ruthie). So here's my names! My middle name is "Mae" which pulled up some interesting Gaelic forms. I'll show you both that and the alternate spelling of my middle name "May."
1. friend. Sindarin: Mellon; fem. Meldis
2. vision of beauty. Sindarin: Bainoth 'beautiful apparition';
Bainthiad, Thiadvain 'beautiful appearance
1. "star", "shining". Sindarin: (star) Êl, Gil; (shining) Silad
2. Gaelic: "sea keeper". Sindarin: (sea-guard) Aerdirith, Gaerdirith, Tirithaer
Irish: joy. Sindarin: Gell, Glass; (joyous person) Gelir; fem. Gelleth Glasseth, Gelireth
English: from a name of a month. Sindarin: Lothron
Quenya: f. Meldë, Nildë
1. Celtic; 'star,' Quenya: Tinwë, Eleniel
2. Celtic; 'shining,' Quenya: Callallë
3.Gaelic; 'sea keeper', Quenya: Eärendildë
"May (Maj, Mai)"
English; 'the month of May'
Quenya: Lótessë, Lótessiel
Biblical meaning 'friend, friendly.' Rohirric: Frëond, Wine, Blíae
Now to complete the geekiness....
If I was speaking Sindarin I would choose my name to be: Bainoth Aerdirith
If I was speaking Quenya I would choose my name to be: Meldë Eleniel
And lastly, if I was speaking Rohirric I would go by: Blíae
