Ok, ok, I'm just bored and didn't know what to post.
Galdhril means "the light of the stars on the trees", and I chose it because I like the concept.
Grondy says: In the above folder, look for Taz's posting on 7/7/2002 at 00:13 for the temporary link to our chat room. Someday it may get reincorporated onto our home page.

Oh, and by the way: nice name! *do I hear an echo here?*
I was searching the web for anything tolkien, and found a site that generated Tolkien names when you but in your real name, so ... I typed in mine and this is what the computer picked for me. I thought it was cute. So here I am.
Our son's name has an interesting story. When my husband was younger, he had some poems and short stories published under R.L. Drake. (nothing major, just some mag, but still cool.) When Robbie was born he came up with names for the initials. So Robbie has 2 middle names. I was not fond of Robert (too common) but I loved the middle names. We debated what to call him for the longest time and Robbie just stuck.
Robert Lance Drake. I thought that was cool. Kind of Medieval sounding.

Love your nick too Amarie! Sounds very pretty...
And I've always been a good girl.
Why did you choose the nicks you have in here?if you don't mind telling.I'll start-btw-this ideea came up to my one and only neuron when i was asked on the net if it comes from rap music.Well....NOOOOOO!!!!!!!Holy Christ,not in a million years.We hatessss rap,hip-hop and all other types of junk some peole call music.If i offended anyone with this,sorry...but this is my opinion.Raptor comes from Velociraptor(for all of ya who saw JurasPark you know what it means),wich is actually Velociraptor mongoliensis9i'm into paleonthology ),wich was a sneeky,rather small but agile and fierce dinosaur.I picked it up in the 7th grade,and now it's me,i try to use it as much as I possibly can.I really,really like the way it sounds.
'raptor' actually kind of means predator bird(hawk,eagle type).

I got my name from LOTR don'tcha know. I didn't see anyone else useing Stonehelm so I thought it was a good name to use.
Imagine if you had a name like mine, Red!
How did you all come with your user names? Mines kinda obvious, but I 've seen some strange ones! Just wondering! Thanks!
Mine comes from an old ghost story my Grandma used to tell my when I was knee-high-to-a-goblin She always told the best ghost stories, especialy if you woke her up during the night cause you didn't feel well...she'd make me a cup of hot lemon barley with honey desolved in it and sit up telling me scary stories and folk tales til I fell asleep. That particular ghost story was a favourite of mine, so I took my name from the ghost herself!
I was one of the smallest (size) in the class, so our english teacher(at school)strated calling me Littleirena.
2 years ago-(when i came back from the summer break-extended summer break-missed a month of school ) she was the first to see me, and she called me < Littleirena, but she's not so little anymore because she's grown >('cause i grew quite a bit- and wasn't short anymore) My friends and i found that toooo long ,so we sticked with Irina.
But I think it's really beautiful and I do whish it was my real name.
It means Holy Cleaving Maiden.
In Uni I was known as "Ole" because one night I started talking with a Scandinavian accent, or at least a stereotypical one, and they tacked that moniker on me even though I'm actually 1/2 Czech, 1/4 Scot, 1/8 German, 1/8 French. Half my mother's grandparents came West over the Oregon Trial in covered wagons, while half my grandparents came West by rail at the end of the nineteenth century after traveling to the East Coast via steamer steerage.
for some reason I thought that was a great name. I don't see that fellow any more (i moved a long way from home), but I've used his made up name to apply for credit cards (when I wanted the free t-shirt), and all kinds of things. So I stole it, but I use it because it reminds me of of one of my favorite friends.
Ladyoflegolas if you sill read those posts there is a name generator at www.barrowdowns.com
Thanx! I've been there lots of times, I love it! In fact, I use my elf name in a RPG thread! It's Eglaviel!
What's Rednell's real name????
Hey Val, maybe this thread should be in the Pony anyway?
