Elvish Baby Names
Elvish (Quenderin) is a word that refers to any of the languages of the Elves. The Hobbits referred to the Elvish languages as languages of the kings. Author J. R. R. Tolkien created many languages for his Elves, which eventuated in the creation of a mythology. His interest was primarily philological, and he said his stories grew out of his languages. Quenya is the Tolkien's language which is the primitive form of Elvish. he phonology, vocabulary and grammar of Quenya is strongly influenced by Finnish and Welsh.
Tolkien used the Roman alphabet to write the names and words of Elvish origin in his works. Sindarin and Quenya have in most aspects very much the same rules in his spelling of the names. It's important to remember that, while most samples of the Elvish language are written with the Latin alphabet, within the fiction the languages were written using Tengwar, or occasionally carved in Cirth.
Many Elvish names come from the works of JRR Tolkien's LOTR (The Lord of the Rings) and The Silmarillion. Other sources for Elvish names are Eragon's Ancient Language; Dungeons and Dragon's Elven; Warhammer Fantasy's Eltharian; Shadowrun's Sperethiel.
