Hey there.

Want to try translating 'Dagredhel' from the elvish into English?
Dagr is not listed is my PDF, but in elvish, you take out a letter or two to make the word flow better, but still keep the general sound and look of the word. Dagora means (to battle), Dagor means battle, and edhel means elf. So this "Dagredhel" could mean either Battle Elf or To Battle Elf....so I'd say Battle Elf or Elf of Battle.

Dagredhel

First Post
'Dagredhel' was the name of my favorite character, an elf (of all things!) I composed his name using Tolkien's elvish as gleaned from the glossary of an old copy of the Silmarrilion. 'Dagr' for 'sword' and 'edhel' for 'tree'. The character went by 'Ironbranch' in the Common tongue (using it in place of a surname.) He was a non-spellcasting "Bladesinger", a two-weapon Fighter 'double-specialized' in the elven fighting-style.

'Battle-Elf' would have suited him just fine.:)

I just got a newer, updated version of the Elven Dictionary, allowing for more accuracy and flexibility in creating names. Thought I'd let everyone know, In case you want to re-submit a name or something similar, or just disovered this thread now.

If you could, Angcuru, I'd like to see what you could do for my wingless avariel character...

Perhaps:

Wingless
Traitor
Betrayer of the clouds
Fallen

Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome as well.
Thanks! :)

Peredhil - Half-Elf
oddly, no word for ghost - Ghost Spider(s) (aka Phase Spider)
ARG, no word for wish either - Wishing Stone (a huge black opal holding a wish spell)
Megilindir - Bladesinger - Queen of Elves
NO WORD FOR corrupt either (DAMMIT) - "Corrupted by the Spider" (an elf wizard who turned to Lolth)
no word for prodigy or prodigal - "Prodigal Daughter" (my half-elf PC, who is about to rediscover her elven roots, since she never knew her elf father)

For both Klaus and Angcuru:

I found my own elven translation pdf ( http://www.grey-company.org/Language/Files/phrase.pdf ) a while ago, and although I am dubious to its accuracy, after cross refferencing " I wish to speak", or "Amin merna quen", and "If you wish, "Manka lle merna", it seems to me that the word for "wish" is merna.

Lets see... the closest I could get to "ghost" was "Blade Spirit, which translates as Hyandae en'luhta. As to which means blade and which means spirit, i dont know. Angcuru might...

And thats all I could find. Hope I could be of help...

oh and also by my pdf, Peredhil is halfling, not half elf. Half elf is Elandili. But... sources conflict. I'd go with angcuru, though. I'm pretty sure my pdf was compiled by a bunch of 12 year olds playing BG2 or NWN (You can kinda tell b/c they list translations for then-popular clans (The Undead Overlords!), and translations for Sword Coast towns/cities)

Angcuru... I'll re-submit the elven culture from before. Again... a matriarchal society, roughly based on Amazons of greek legend... and the real-life Sarmatians of northern Persia/Southern Russia.

Wingless - N'Raamavoite
Traitor - Dhaerow
Betrayer of the clouds - Dhaerow tel' Loomie
Fallen - Talant

Windstriker - Pelektar en' Sul (Striker of Wind)
Fogstrider - Vanar no' Hiise (walker on fog)
Mistwalker - Triallar e' Hisie (walker in mist)

I was wanting to use the archer of the woods- Cuar tel Taur......but exactly how do you pronounce it?

Those are the ones I could get you given the descriptions you gave me.

Hey Ancguru: cool thread. But I gotta ask, where did you get the dictionary from? Does it have grammar and pronunciation in it? All I have is the appendices on Sindarin and Quenya from LotR.

As a student of linguistics, I would be very interested in having a look at the dictionary. I know Tolkien took his languages very seriously and I'm curious to know what resemblance Sindarin and Quenya bear to real-life languages.

Thanks in advance mate!
