    Eowyn and other Tolkien names

    Eowyn is the girl version of Samwise for me. She did so much there at the end, but she doesn't get a ton of recognition. Unlike Arwen, her name isn't used nearly as much but I find it beautiful and so much more lyrical than Arwen.

    Here's some other favorites I think are usable:

    Arwen -- obviously
    Amaranth
    Esmeralda
    Galadriel -- I know it's super connected, but it's beautiful with a lovely meaning
    Hanna
    Luthien
    Lorien -- which is a place and I am using
    Morwen
    Vana
    Yavanna


    GP from the list -- Goldworthy. It has lovely connotations and would be a spectacular middle.

    Eowyn, both the character and the name, is wonderful.

    I really like:
    Alatáriel
    Fíriel
    Galadriel
    Lorien
    Lothiriel
    Melian
    Silmarien
    Theodwyn
    Tinúviel
    Undómiel
    Valinor
    Vidumavi

    I also think that Arwen is great, but it seems like the name most people turn to when they wanna honour Tolkien's work in a name.

    No, I mean Goldworthy. It was part of the name of another character, a hobbit. Hanna "Goldworthy" Brandybuck was married to Madoc Brandybuck. She's a character from the rest of the world, not specifically the LOTR trilogy or The Hobbit.
