    Eowyn and Arwen

    Do you think Eowyn (pronounced AY-oh-win) or Arwen would be usable for children, or are they too strongly associated with the Lord of the Rings? (I'm not considering them for siblings, just individually.) I like LOTR, but I'd be worried the names sound too fannish and little Eowyn or Arwen would grow up to dislike the series.

    I think they're both pretty tied to it. And you can't throw a rock into a crowd without hitting at least one LOTR fan. lol That said, they're beautiful and have a history of their own, so I wouldn't be hesitant to use either.

    Well, if I met an Eowyn or Arwen, I'd immediately assume her parents were LOTR fans... but that's about it. It's not exactly a connection that would hold a woman back in life or cause any kind of difficulty. The names are quite pretty on their own as well.

    100% agree with this. I love both Arwen and Eowyn. I know neither of them in real life but I'll be happy to meet one.
    If you're still not sure, using them as middle name would be a great option.

    While I personally prefer both names as middles (they're both unbelievably stunning), I don't see anything odd about using them as first names either. LOTR is one of the best novels I've ever read, I would be honoured to be named after either Eowyn or Arwen (and I secretly also love Galadriel).
