Thread: Samwise and other Tolkien names
September 12th, 2013 09:35 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 ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Silas ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Freeman ◊ Dean ◊ Jasper ◊ Solomon
♀ | I'm taking a break from girls' names at the moment.

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!Artemis Willow ☀ Cordelia Avalon ☀ Isabeau Forest ☀ Isadora Nightingale ☀ Lorelei Ondine ☀ Lyra Snow ☀ Pandora Everild ☀ Tabitha Eilonwy ☀ Thisbe Wildrose ☀ Thora Silmarien

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, but Kili was my fave character from The Hobbit. Alas sadly, neither one is usable in the real world.
Isildur- Come on, that sounds so legendary! It's like a mix of Isidore and the world silver. Gorgeous, but a flawed namesake I suppose.
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- Is a pretty kick-butt name and character. This one sounds so substantial to me, I can easily see him hanging with all the little Theo's.
I also think that Shadowfax and Glamdring would make the ultimate names for pets. =]Dominic James~ (Felicity : Julia : Rowena : Gabriel : Jude)

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.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^

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.
