Thread: Samwise and other Tolkien names
September 12th, 2013 08:35 PM #11
I love Peregrin, Rohan, and Thorin. I'd never use them, but I love them. I'm just starting to really get into Tolkien's works, but I've been a fan of the movies since I was old enough to watch them. Part of the reason I love Sam so much is because of Sam Gamgee. My taste in names just isn't adventurous enough for Samwise.Samuel / Joseph / Ezra / James / Edward / Lewis
Helen / Georgia / Jane / Alice / Frances / Mary

Lots of my favorites. we've also added Finglas (one of the ancient ents) and Thorondor (king of the eagles) to our definitely list. I actually met a Thorondor once!Cordelia Eilonwy Snow | Evadne Snow | Felicity Astra Wildrose | Gwenna Moon | Lorelei Ondine | Octavia Eowyn Sol
Pandora Willow Isolde | Petra Leocadia Silver | Sunniva Adar Rhiannon | Thisbe Wildrose
Caspian Wilder | Damian Sparrow | Evander Thorn | Everett Lyle Ward
Ezra Balthasar | Gwydion Alaric Hart | Konrad Peregrine Llyr | Malachi Tristan Bjorn | Phineas Robin Blaise | Theodore Winter

I like Samwise, Strider, Peregrin especially with nn Pippin, and Legolas. I also adore Greenleaf as a gp (or a dream surname) Swoon.
Fili & Kili- I like Fili's name better, alas sadly, neither one is usable in the real world.
Isildur- He's like the legendary cousin of Isidore. Awesome, but a flawed namesake.
Smeagol- I might be the only one, but I kind of think this name is adorable.
(I would never use it, but it's got a nice ring to it... hehe!)
Thorin- A kick-butt name and character. This one is definitely substantial enough to be used.
I also think that Shadowfax and Glamdring would make the ultimate names for pets. =]

You're not alone. I think Smeagol sounds adorable too but should stay in the bet category. I know someone named Torin (so it's close there).
Glamdring the Foe Hammer...I shall name my next cat this. Orcrest the Goblin Cleaver as well.http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Blackwood/e/B00SARZLFY -- My Amazon Author Page

i find almost all of the Elven names usable. Rohan and Rohirrim (the latter as mn) have been on my list forever. Elendil is great. i love Eowyn but the character is a bit sad so i wouldn't use it on a person.
so far i have met a real life Frodo, Gandalf and Arwen. i was surprised to see how well Arwen worked for a person! i wouldn't have expected so. in the same way, Aragorn could work for a real person, although my first inclination is to stay away from it since it's such a well-known Tolkien name.
i named two cats of mine Tinúviel and Feanor. i recommend the Silmarillion for even more name inspiration!
that said.. Silmaril?
the dwarves have some great names too if you're into Nordic-sounding names.
