of some of the
- Faithful Vassal Woman
chose it because I wanted to find something to reflect my relationship
with my maker. A vassal is a bondservant - a servant by choice,
and it reminded me of Sam being Frodo's servant by choice, and that I
am God's servant by choice. I added the 'iel' ending to
- Shining Coast
‘cal’ is for shining and ‘falas’ is for coast or shore. I live in
California, so it seemed like an appropriate name to me.
- Quiet Elf Maiden
I know this
may be hard to believe since I "chatter" on the message boards, but I
really am a quiet person in the real world. Maybe that is why my
favorite character is Legolas. Both of us say very little but are
Isilotsë - Moonflower
Lothithil's lurker name, in Quenya.) I wanted something Elvish and
original, so I composed the name myself. Seron gave me the Quenya
translation, and I thank him! I think it is beautiful, which is why I
only use it occasionally. It seems too fine a name for daily use.
Quicksilver - Lady of the Ashen Moon
Quicksilver is the Common Tongue for Bragolcelebriel, which translates
to "Sudden" and "silver". A full rendering of my name(s) would most
correctly be "Lady of the Ashen Moon Suddenly Struck Silver",
portending a transformation from grief to great joy.
This is my
favourite flower that blooms only at night. I chose it for
a character in a story I am writing, and then borrowed it back to use
as my handle here.
- Flower of the Heavens
I am a
stargazer; in the heavens my heart finds both joy and rest, in the
beauties of the visible heaven and in the glories of Heaven to
come. I initially wanted to use Menelas, Leaf of the Heavens, to
signify a telescope that reflects a piece of heaven to the
observer. This seemed appropriate since I design space telescopes
for NASA and I wish to reflect the Creator. But I learned that
-las is a masculine ending, so I went with the feminine -loth ending
indicating a flower. Perhaps this is also how the elves would
name a comet.
Nisimaldar- Fragrant Trees
I'm Nisimaldar because my real name translates to fragrant forest and Nísimaldar means fragrant trees.
Mine means "sister" -- I chose it
for a lot of different reasons... My brother and his family are very
important to me. Also very important to me are my brothers and sisters
Laivindur - Twin Anointed One's Servant
translations are Quenya. My first name Thomas means Twin =
Onóno. I am a Reverend also and came across the word Laivine
which translates as The Anointed One or Christ (Greek for
Anointed one) and the ending "dur" = servant.
Ithildin - Glittering (White) Starmoon
this because I always stay up late and I work nights. I just
usually go by Ithildin, but, when I went to sign up for the
boards, that name was taken so I found Silivren and thought, since
stars and the moon give off glittering white light, I would use
- Piper Elf (female)
