How about translating "Greatest mariner of Song" in Quenya? <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

I've got two ideas for the name of the ship, unfortunately neither of them are very original they're just things I found during some research:<BR><BR><i>Alqarame</i> means 'Swanwing', this was Tuor's ship<BR><BR><i>Earame</i> means 'Eaglepinion', this was Earendil's first ship<BR><BR>To be honest I don't know what language those are written in. I've read most of his books over and over and over again since 3rd grade but I never took the time to study any of the languages<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

I like both, Alqarame and Earame but I also like Amarie´s idea of translating.<BR><BR>I know that Eluchil is the man for the work so I´ll be asking this on Language Forum.

Nice work, Ithilien. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Although that's a pretty long name for a ship. Still, I like it.

Ok Earendil´s light bearer is the one that I like the most but I think that Caracolindo means Bearee. I´ll ask this in Language again.

I know I#m not a member of the guild yet, but I like Alqarame, since it was the name of my ship.

Hey, Ithilien. Can we change the name of our Valinor thread? It doesn't have to be Earendilites right?
