Elvish Names

Alert Blogger & Greader* Ma Titwonky brought up the importance of us human-type people having our names translated to Elvish, and lamented that she couldn't find the Elvish name generator/translator she used in the past.

Well, Ma, ya came to the right Blog. There are actually lots of Elvish name translators on the Web (not to be confused with Elvis name translators), but only one of them is actually sponsored by The Intergalactic Union of Elves, and that's the one coded up by Chris Wetherell, Google User Interface Engineer.

Would you believe Chris' engine has over 4.692^32 trillion lines of complex code that carefully evaluates every nuance of every Elvish word from every current and long-demised dialects? Translating 'Ma Titwonky' results in "Ireth Arnatuilë", but you might want to try the engine with other options such as middle name instead of first or last name, or a pen name (e.g. Bic or Papermate).

Your Blog Pal,
Findecáno Singollo (John Lambert)

*Blog comes from Web Log, so I figure Greader comes from Blog Reader. And every Elf I've discussed this with agrees with me.

I did find a generator but it wasn't the one you recommend. The one I was going to use was at http://www.seventhsanctum.com/; however, you know far more about this subject than I do, and I LOVE the name you came up with for me, so I'm deferring to your expertise. Thank you so much for finding my true elf heritage. I will be eternally grateful. :)
