Postby ElvinFlame » Fri Sep 06, 2002 10:10 am

My username has two words and two parts to its meaning. I invented it for a penname on Fanfiction.net and have been using it pretty much everywhere ever since.<BR><BR>Elvin- A wrong spelling of elven(if there is one, Tolkien probably wouldn't think so). I like spelling it elvin better. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR>It shows my love of LotR and other fantasies. LotR in particular though.<BR><BR>Flame- For my love of anime. Most of them have something about Ki or Chi. The inner life force or soul energy as I always think of it. The soul is often represented as a flame in the heart. In anime ki is often depicted as a flaming aura around the person.<BR><BR>And that is what I was thinking about as I was pondering over the blank on the entry screen of FF.net, about to enter myself into the ranks of other fanfiction authors and poets.

One day I found an Ilkorin dictionairy on the web. I downloaded it, but there were only about 200 words. The only one I liked was gwilwering. And I even liked the translation of gwilwering - butterfly. So I started to use it as my username <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Not wildly creative, I'm afraid... I chose Lalaith cos it means laughter (laughing's good <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> ) and 81 cos I like the number... also cos my favourite LOTR names were already gone when I signed up...

Postby Decendant » Sat Nov 09, 2002 8:32 pm

well..I chose Decendant for an odd reason.<BR>First of all I have a mixed personality of all the people orrigionally in the fellowship. I can be a courious person like Merry; silly and stupid like Pippin; loyal as Sam; determined as Frodo; as bull headed as Gimli; as greedy and easaly swayed as Boromir; as at home in the woods as Legolas; and as good with the sword as Aragorn. The part that I could say that others have seen for Gandalf is the fact that I can comand flame. Afterall he did wield the Flame of Arnor and he did recieve the elven ring of Fire from the last keeper of it at The Grey Havens at the end of The Return Of The King.<BR>I thought that it would be cool to identify my IC as the decendent of these people. And the last one to be put into that line would be Legolas or one of Aragorn and Arwen's children, because of my build and ears that get the little kidds worked up around Cristmas.

Postby Anvanimiel » Sun Nov 17, 2002 12:25 pm

Well... I chose my name <i>Anvanimiel</i> in one of my more modest moments. "Anvanima" apparently means "most beautiful" in Quenya, (Although I am not very familiar with the language) and the "iel" is just to transform the word into a female name. I wanted an Elvish name becuase the Elves are the culture that I identify with most readily in Tolkien's works. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0>

Postby LadyElf » Sun Nov 17, 2002 8:42 pm

Well, LadyElf was just something I came up with when I was signing up on another LotR fan site and it seemed like all the good names were taken, now I'm rather attached to it and I use it for all my fan sites that I sign up for. So if you see a LadyElf anywhere its probably me. I also have another screen name "Elenmiriel" which, if I have studied my Quenya correctly, means "Star Jewel maiden" or something like that. I tend to jump between those names. My AIM sn is LadyElf83 too. I meant for the Lady part to be like a titled lady, not just a female elf.

Postby Edlothiawen » Mon Dec 09, 2002 4:48 pm

I selected the username <b>Edlothiawen</b> (<i>you can call me Ed</i>) in order to reflect the deep "appreciation" I have for the actor, Mr. Orlando Bloom. I scanned the Sindarin Dictionary project and found that the word "edlothiad-" meant flower, or bloom. Then I simply removed the last "d" and added "-wen" so as to make it a more feminine, Elvish sounding name.<BR><BR>And, it essentially means "bloom"! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

My friends I decided we needed elvish names, of course, and I wanted something close to original. My middle name is Elise, so I used the first three letters,improvised a few more and finally my brother convinced mye to finish it off with "-driel" voila. Elliendriel. My Elvish name.

Postby Celebrimbor32 » Mon Jan 06, 2003 10:12 pm

Well, I guess mine is pretty self-explanatory, but just in case - <i>Celebrimbor</i>, son of Curufin, son of Fëanor, maker of the three Silmarils! Int the Second Age <i>Celebrimbor</i> established the elven realm of Ost-in-Edhil, located between Tharbad and Khazad-dum, along the Glanduin Rv. He was the leader of the elven smiths known as the Gwaith-i-Mirdain and was the maker of the three elven rings. He was wickedly slain by Sauron as he defended his treasures during the war. For some reason he has always been character I have been interested in. I added the number 32 because someone else had already chosen 'Celebrimbor' before me and I was in a hurry at the time. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

I have used the same username in a couple of other forums, too. At the time I registered to TORC, all the names from Tolkien's stories I could remember at the moment were taken so, I chose the good old one.<BR><BR>How I first invented it: There's a rowan tree in my front yard and, at that time, it was full of berries. And, if you want some significance, rowans were sacred trees to ancient Finns.<BR><BR>BTW, some may think my username is a bit androgynous but, I'm <b>very</b> female. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

When I first told my mom what my username on here was she was like, <i>'What in the world does that stand for?'</i>. And when I got premiere membership we where having trouble so we had to call someone working for TORC and they had NO clue what my name might mean. <BR><BR>Is it that hard? In Lord of the Rings a few times Galadriel is called the sorceress of Lorien. So I took 'sorceress' and added it to 'GoldenWood' which refers to Lothlorien. Thus 'Sorceress in the Golden Wood' is a name for Galadriel!

Being a late arrival to TORC all the names I wanted were taken (I really wanted to be Ancalagon!) so I just used the name I've had for a year on another forum. Scarlet is the name of my favourite 'obscure' U2 track; it's also the colour of my face if I'm embarrassed, tipsy or exposed to the sun for any length of time at all. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> And it seemed not out of place here... it's a passionate sort of colour.

Hmm...well, I feel a bit ashamed that I don't have a LotR-conducive name. I wasn't really thinking at the time and used the user name that I use for pretty much everything. Anyway, an 'exobiologist' is a biologist that studies extraterrestrial lifeforms (like the supposed microbes found on the Mars meteorite) and studies how humans could live on Mars. Ever since I was younger I've wanted to do that, so I just made it a user name. Yay.
