    Elven Names for Everyone!

    Greetz.
    I've gone temporarily insane, and have decided to learn the Quenya (Elven) language. And, just for fun, I've started translating people's names into Quenya. If you want this done with your name, just give me your first name, and I'll see what I can do for ya.

    God bless,

    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    Jason-- Greek of 'to heal', Quenya envinyata 'heal, renew', so the name would be *drumroll....* Envinyatar, which is also Aragorn's title in LOTR

    I'm just a genius

    Jennifer-- from the Celtic 'white/fair + soft/smooth'; Quenya losse 'white', pasta 'smooth', to get Lossepaste; also, from the Celtic 'white + wave', so Lossefalme (falma 'wave)

    Angel-- from the Greek 'a messenger' or simply 'angel', so Ainu ('angelic power' or 'angelic spirit')

    Enjoy!

    Tolkien's languages are indeed very fascinating...It's actually led me to start the creation of my own. As for where to learn this (and many of his other languages) go to http://directory.google.com/Top/Scie...ian_Languages/ or in the google directory the path is science > Social Sciences > Language and Linguistics > Constructed Languages > Fictional > Tolkenian Languages.

    If you are interested in learning how to create your own: http://directory.google.com/Top/Scie...uage_Creation/ or Science > Social Sciences > Language and Linguistics > Constructed Languages > Language Creation.

    btw, my first name is Matt (long: Matthew)
    Preliminary operational tests were inconclusive (the dang thing blew up)

    IMHO, Quenya is by far the most beautiful language... if only the dictionary was complete. Too many voids are left, but that's okay.

    Anyway, here goes for your name.
    Matthew -- from the Hebrew for 'gift of God'; Quenya Eru 'God', anna 'gift', thus your name would be Eruanno. Since you can drop the A when followed by a U, it could also be Erunno

    Enjoy!
