I know it's really sad, but i love these books so much that i wanted to get a Lord of the Rings name in somewhere, even if just as a middle name.

The most 'normal' ones or fav ones are:

Girls:
Arwen
Eowyn
Galadrial
Merry
Lorien

Boys:
Sam(Wise)
Strider
Theoden
Rohan
Faramir

Arwen and Eowyn are pretty. I was in M&S in town the other day, and heard a mum call to a cute little girl whose name was Eowyn. I'm afraid I did thing "LOTR freak" though grin

Strider though? Seriously?

NOOOOOOOO
You cannot call a child Samwise. Just don't. And Strider is a dog. And isn't Merry a boy?? Rohan is a brand of outdoor clothing.
Just. Don't.

Stick it in as one of the middle names - right at the end of the list...

Rohan is lovely for a boy, though I prefer Rowan. Theoden quite cute too.

Merry is male!

Strider is very sexy and all but a stupid name for a child. Arwen prob okay as a middle name. Faramir deffo a step too far.

I know a Rohan and a Merry (female, but male in LOTR).

I used to have a pair of (male) rats called Meriadoc and Peregrin. They were the fattest rats I have ever seen. Not that this has anything to do with what you name your child, of course!

Lol, yes I know Merry was male, but it's really a very feminine name, I could go for Meredith and shorten to Merry.

I agree Strider and Faramir are a step too far for first names.

I put the wise in the brackets because i wouldnt be that mean either for a first name.

But not Arwen? Or Theoden? They sound fairly normal to me. Maybe I've had my head stuck in the books too many years!

BelligerentYhoULE Tue 21-Dec-10 22:53:48

Yes - Meredith/Merry is lovely.

FunnysInTheGarden Tue 21-Dec-10 22:56:16

no no no you will regret it. Just call a child a name you like, no themes nothing. Tis too naff

BTW there are loads of welsh/early english names which sound similar which you could use without resorting to made up ones

Wasn't Wendy made up for Peter Pan?

Meredith/Merry is good.

Otherwise, none of those as first name, whatever you like for middle name as that's what middle names are for.

I suppose you could have Theoden (shortened to Theo) - or how about Elanor?

NadiaWadia Tue 21-Dec-10 23:24:20

How about Bilbo ? grin

BelligerentYhoULE Tue 21-Dec-10 23:26:53

I used to have a hamster called Bilbo.

And I also knew somebody who had a Volkswagon Beetle called Bilbo.

I am a mine of useless LOTR-names-related anecdotes, me! grin

I did know a little boy called Peregrine, whose parents called him Pippin.

I'm also keen on the LOTR names and would go for (middle names) of Lorien, Arwen, Eowyn or Elanor. I'm sold on Eleanor anyway, so one letter missing wouldn't change it that much, not if it's a middle name that's hardly ever going to be used.
