    Hi Tolkien family

    I'm new to this site and this is my first thread post but I need your expert help! I have had a deep connection to the works of Tolkien from a young age and I have recently purchased a house and would like to give it a name from one of the Tolkien works. My husband is not a middle earth fan so it can't be anything too difficult to spell or pronounce and my fool of a took brother stole the name 'Weathertop' for his house last year! So far I have suggested Entwood, Grey Haven, Lorien and Valinor but have yet to decide. If anyone could give me any new suggestions and help a newbie out then you will forever have my bow Thanks in advance! P.s the house is on top of a hill with a big garden if that gives any inspiration! Thanks again

    http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Category:Hills - Here's a list of hills in Middle-earth, if that helps at all.

    Let me know if you need anymore ideas. I'd be glad to help!

    By the way, Welcome to the Forum! :D:D:D:)

    Since it's on a hill and that there's a big garden, why not Bag End?

    Just a suggestion.

    How about the Prancing Pony? Then I could stop by for a visit.

    Hi, there, fellow member!
    In my opinion, Valinor, Varlar, Varda, Maiar, Arda, Angband would all fit very well with any houses on the hill.
    Also, these names are such unique that when anyone hears it, they'll think of something epicly intense on the high ground, a force to be reckoned with. :cool:
