I do not have a middle name on my birth certificate. I have been thinking about it lately and I decided that I want one. But...here's the thing. I want something mystical or elvish. I loved Lord of the Rings and would love to have a really cool middle name. I am open to all suggestions, so please, post away. Remember....nothing is too "weird" in my book, so don't hold back.

Hmm.. the only things that spring immediately to mind are the "fluffy bunny Pagan" names (moonwalker, ravensinger, etcetc)...



But - I think it's cool to give yourself a middle name!



Maybe you could check out www.kabbalarians.com (hope I spelled that right) or babynames.com or something - for meanings, personality, etc.. Find something that means something to you, that fits who you are, a trait you like, or something you strive to be.



Kabbalarians has various kinds of names that you can go through, they have anything you can think of - so check that one out for sure!

One of my online friends from a different site actually has the middle name Arwen (Her parents were LOTR geeks ^^). I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I like the names Aurora, Raven, and Genvieve.



Oh, BTW, I found this site - it's all Tolkien names.

That's how I came up with Dreea. I'm using it as one of the names for a half-goddess in my book

Here are a few names that I looked at and seemed to like the meanings. I put the name in bold letters:



AISLIN (f.) - Gaelic 'dream, vision'; olos "dream", so perhaps Oloriel

AMBROSE, ABROISINE (f.) - Latin 'immortal, divine'; valaina "divine, belonging to Valar, so Valaine

BETHIA (f.) - Heb. 'daughter of Jehovah'; Eru "God"; -iel "daughter", thus Eruiel

CERIDWEN (f.) - Welsh 'poetry + white'; maybe linwe "poem" would serve; losse "white", this Linwelos (Linwelosse)

CHERIE (f.) - perhaps from French 'darling'; melima "beloved", so Melime

DARA (f.) - Heb. 'pearl of wisdom'; nóre "wisdom, lore", marilla "pearl" (this word is from the Qenya Lexicon, so need not be valid in LotR-style Quenya, maybe this could be used instead mÃ*re "jewel", so Nólemarille or NólemÃ*re

EIREANN (f.) - Gaelic name of Ireland; Tolkien translated it as Ãverin (see QL), so Ãverin by itself



Oloriel and Iverin are my two favorites. I guess it would help if all of you knew my actual first name. It's Michelle. I am also going to look at the Tolkien name site.

You know, as much as I like to talk, that name might please way too many people.



How do you pronounce ANNWN or ANNWFN?

How I pronounce it in my head might not be correct and I have no idea how to pronounce it by typing.

Casseopia-the constellation.

I like Savannah, though it's not mystical, but nature-ish!

I like so many of the names that have been given, but most of them don't sound good with Michelle in front of it. If only I had a name that was easier to work with. Where are all the LOTR fans???

One fan right here! What tolkien did was draw on old european languages for his characters. I hear he began with the names of things and then made the story around it. I like Eowyn in particular... I believe it means Horse - somethingoranother. Can't remember. It'd be hard for you to do exactly how he did... seeing as how you're already a person!



Anyway, in terms of matching a name with yours, try to have something that begins with a nice hard consonant sound, seeing how Michelle has its emphasis on the first syllable and its end is not as strong-sounding in comparison. The letter T particularly strikes me as a good one. Like Triveni (Three Sacred Rivers, from Hindi), Taline (Monestary, from Armenian) or Tallis (Forest, from French). Something like that. It needs a strong around at the beginning in order balance it and help it flow from your first name into it. It doesn't need to be T. I just have a thing for that letter



Good luck!

I like Eowyn, too. I wished it sounded good with my name. I also like Arwen, but again, not good with my name. I like the meaning of Tallis, as elves live in the forest. I agree with you, though, that my name needs something strong after it. The names on LOTR's are all good ones and they make me think of mystical characters. That's what I really want for myself and unfortunately, some of the "supposed" elf names don't sound that good. I wished I knew how to speak elf...then I might be able to come up with something unique.



Thanks for the suggestion. I will look at more names and try to keep "the balance".

I have my daughters name picked out. Not sure when I'm ever going to have a kid but perhaps you could name yourself after someone. With the jewish tradition you take the first letter of the persons name and create the name base with the letter.



funny your name's michelle. Because I was thinking of the name Raina Michelle for my kid, if that helps at all.

I don't think Bob goes well with Michelle, but since it was suggested that I use a name that starts with the letter T, then how about Tame??

my name is Meshell and my middle name is Antionette(yeah my mom can't spell). My daughter's name was going to be Erwen at first, but we decided on Sydney Michelle. Middle names are hard.....what about something from Shakespeare?

I have a weird name.



My mom decided that if I had light hair when I was born, I'd be Stevie Raye (I think).. and dark hair, Lacy Jae.



My aunt wanted her to name me Lacy Jane so she could shorten it to Lacy Jae, but Lacy Jae roxors



Luckily I roleplay (tabletop and live action) and get to re-name myself a billion names!!



So far I've been: Gwendolynn, Bobby, Effecs, Sekhekh, Daylea, Tazia, and Bandi in my larp ones... which are fun.



I've been pondering more names. Whether for potential kids, for potential characters, for characters for comics I might do one day, or whatever... I am a name freak. But odd names, and spelled strangely, they must be spelled strangely!
