Elven name: Inwe Elendil
Hobbit name: Esmerelda Peatfingers of Brockenborings

Here's how my girls' names translated:
Elven names: Alasse Saralonde and Tari Saralonde
Hobbit names: Prisca Burrows and Tigerlily Burrows

And my husband's:
Elven name: Eol Saralonde
Hobbit name: Grigory Burrows

I wonder how they come up with these "translations"?

Esmerelda Peatfingers of Brockenborings? That's priceless :lol: . That's definitely my new favourite. Makes Ivy Grubb sound really boring.

Elf name: Lúthien Telemnar
Hobbit: Rosie-Posie Sandybanks of Frogmorton

Looks like Estel and I have the same first names! :D

Great links Philipa! I checked out the one where you can write your name in Elvish, supposedly a 10-minute activity. After reading some of the instructions, I think that's a very optimistic estimate! :roll: :wink:

This has certainly put a smile on my face and it was fun

My elfish name is Eamane Calmcacil
My hobbit name is Bramblerose Danderfluff of Willowbottom

So I've worked out I must have some relatives out there...or at least share the same washing line :lol: :lol:

Philipa, the name generator is up and running, Chris says that there is such a large response it gets backed up sometimes.

Here's my Elvish, ORELINDE SARALONDE

Not so sure I like my Hobbit name, GOLDIE BURROWS

This was fun, thanks :D
