I decided that since a good amount of people tend to have trouble conceiving names for elves, I'm going to start taking requests. Tell me what you want the name to be in english, and I'll get it to you in elven.

SERIOUS REQUESTS ONLY PLEASE! This translation stuff takes time.;)

Out of interest what brand of Elvish is this? :)

I can't think of anything to get translated at the moment though :(, maybe I'll think of something later...

An explanation

bearer of the meat cloak:
A friend had successfully used his wilderness knowledge skill and tracking to hunt down a deer for the party to eat.
Another player decided that he should make use of his skills as well and tried to fasion a cloak from the deer skin.
He botched it so badly that all he has was the skin with a bunch of ragged chunks of meat and a few bones left, the rest of the party naturally made fun of him for it. He decided that he would punish the rest of the party by actually wearing the cloak.
While it attracted lots of wandering monsters the party was able to deal with it, and it often provided entertainment and made most of thier foes run for the hills at first site of the group.
(another player also had a habit of stringing body parts around his neck....)
Thunderclease is from spaceghost, and for some reason a favorite name of one of my players. He has named three characters this way and also called every weapon owned by a character without that name thunderclease.
Thanks for being a sport and translating my stuff, I didnt think you were gonna go for the king of dewey folage either....;)

Well, using the vocabulary in Dragon, my PC is Lahrneh Athelchas, meanng "no name, new to the bow"

So how would you translate "no name"?

No Name , New to the Bow = Essan'ner(nameless) Cuwinyar(bow newbie)

And just if anyone was wondering, Master of the Wind translates to Sultura, which I will have as a ancestral prestige class in my upcoming FR campaign.;)
