I would definately name my son 'Mormegil Smith', It's such a cool name.:p

But seriously. Idril isn't a bad name either. Same with Varda.

One of my friend's neighbor's has a son named, Aragorn Peregrin. I don't think I could do that to one of my kids..... Luthien is a pretty name though.

I wonder if Ancalagon Junior would look good on a birth certificate? Better still; I wonder would my son like to have this as a name, then again he could have been one of Frank Zappas children and then where would he be!

I know some names I definitely (not definately) wouldn't use: Manwe, Mandos, Ulmo.

Girl: Luthien, Idril
Boy: Beren,

Maybe a child's name is going too far. A car on the other hand...

I have a silver audi and I've already thought of a name: MITHRIL
Had: Eagle Talon - GWAIHIR

This talk make me remember that in my country existed a guy who changed his name to Radical Sanson ¡¡¿?!!

Please, be careful with names, specially your sons names. :)

Had a Boat called Vingilot once - Surprising how many people recognised the name, which is pretty obsure.

Obscure? Who could forget the name of the ship that travel's the sky each night, bringing light and hope to Middle-Earth via the Silmaril borne by Earendil? :) :) :)

Seriously -- I think that Luthien Tinuviel is one of the fairest names that I have ever heard. I'd name any daughter of mine that if I had a wife who was at least slightly bonkers like me. :)

I know a girl named Arwyn!

I don't think I'd actually name my kid with a Tolkien name for the first name, but I'm not opposed to middle names. Though, Tiffany Tinuviel sounds really bad.... (not that I like the name Tiffany....)

Easy Tommy Aikens from Bootle ! But seriously, yes Luthien Tinuviel is pretty good.

My son is named JRR, Jay for short.

Made you look!

Sam maybe, Rose definitely.
My oldest daughter's middle name is Rose.
But I'm not much on odd names.
Life's tough enough without kids picking on you because your name is Finrod or Fingolfin....

Yeah -- Finrod and Fingolfin might be considered odd... but I have discovered that kids will pick on almost any name that isn't theirs. :)

I want to name my son, when I have one, John Beren. I think that goes well with my last name of Spieles. Not really about Tolkien or anything, but I know a kid named Raisor Isreal Sharp..... Now if his parents weren't smokin something when hew was born I'd real surprised...

I've met a girl called Arwen and I must admit to considering Arwen for both my daughters, but in the end gave them different names (3 each, just in case they don't like their first names).

Lord A, are you for real? Raisor Isreal Sharp? LOL!

I always thought Lorien would be a lovely name for a girl. I would definitely name my kids with a Sil name, even if it was only a middle name. There are some beautiful names in that book. I quite like Indis and Melian as well. I haven't got any kids, but i suppose i could start with some pets...
