Is it more acceptable if I was the first Gandalf? []

Okay so there was a Mithrandir before me. But he's my brother. And he registered on the same day as me, and I didn't know he had already named himself Mithrandir.

So really, my Gandalf-ness is justified. []

And I was Lord Faramir for awhile...

Roll of Honor Roccowen Eilonwyiel
Guard of the Citadel
Citizen # 3727

posted      Profile for Roccowen Eilonwyiel   Author's Homepage   Email Roccowen Eilonwyiel   New Private Message   Edit/Delete Post 
I think I've broken almost every one of those rules in the past. My first name was Rochwen of Limlight. Rochwen is bad elvish-a mix of Sindarin and Queya, I think. Then, I made myself from a very obscure place in Middle Earth. I finished off by being named after a character of my own invention.

And my name now...
Well, Roccowen is all Quenya (right? I'm forgetting my elvish). Eilonwyiel is suppoed to be Queya for "daughter of Eilonwy," but of course Eilonwy is a character from another "fantasy series", so there goes another rule down the drain. And techincally the name "Eilonwyiel" is ridiculous because no name in Queya would end in "y" for the ending "-iel" to be a problem.


And after all those sins, I'm expecting quite the punishment.

Roccowen is indeed correct, and I think Eilonwyiel would more likely be Eilonwyel. Not completely sure, though.

Copy and paste it into Excel, then drag one corner down 1000 lines, and voilá! []

The trouble is that you have to choose a screen name before you can log on and ask anyone here about what screen name you should choose []

Of course you can change it later, like when someone translates your Sindarin name into Quenya [] (thanks, Éomer [] )

Not bad elvish. The names Boromir and Tol Eressëa are combinations of the two languages, but seem to be from a reputable source. []

As a newbie (relative to these boards anyway), I hope I'm not going to awake tomorrow with a bullseye on my back. In any case, I MUCH enjoyed reading (pretty much) this entire thread. After registering at one forum as "flyhopper" (HOW AWFUL IS THAT ONE??? I am now somewhat older - and hopefully - wiser.) for the very reason noted above (I needed to register in order to figure out just how bad that name was!), I made a small amount of effort, found some on-line guides to Quenya, and constructed my username from "parma" = book, "asta" = month, hir- = root form of "to find". Therefore, "book of months finder". It is supposed to reflect my particular Tolkien passion: collecting Tolkien calendars (which you can read about in "Bag End Auctions" if you are interested (not wanting to take this thread off topic). Hopefully, your name reflects who you are (or wish to emulate). Wish I were JRRT, but that name goes with only one person. Best to all, Parmastahir

Maybe I should have a blurb about choosing another citizen's name. The Witch King of Angmar (a.k.a. Wiki) and The Witch King of Angmar (a.k.a. New Wiki) are confusing me.

But it's been five years since I registered a screen name here. What's the process? How can one tell if a desired name is taken prior to registry? There is a difference between displayed name and user name, right?

Look it up in the directory. If it's existing it will have an entry. Your logon name is the name under which you registered, in my case TheLastElf (*cringe*), and your user name is whatever you susequently change it to.
