You could try thinking of an evil word in english, then looking it up in a latin dictionary. Hey *shrugs* it could work.

Ungol, yeah I've read the Ramayana [in English coz hardly anybody understands Sanskrit]
and I've read 2 versions in english
u can try either of these if u manage to get hold of em
Ramayana by Kamala Subramaniam
Ramayana by C.R. Rajagopalachari
i found the first one much more interesting, but that's probably becoz i did the 2nd one in school
i prefer Mahabharata though
anyways, to halo black, already did all that
that's how i got stuff like "Deorc", "Deorach" etc......[look up "dark" and check the origin]

Thanks sauron, I'll try to find the translations you listed. :)

How's Mahabharata though? I've never read it before, but I've heard from people that they prefer it too. What is it about - and do they have the same characters as Ramayana? Can I assume that the same people did the best English translations?

Generally Mahabharata is more of an epic than Ramayana, coz it is more down-to-earth, the wars fought are more interesting, and it has 5 heroes instead of 1 or 2
in the mahabharata, even the 5 heroes [pandavas] make very human mistakes, unlike Rama [in ramayana] who is supposed to symbolise the perfect man/
yeah they did the same translations too

Try using Old English. I did that and found Awedan which means go mad.

Is that what it means then? Cos it's very similar to Aiwedan which was Radagast the brown's name in Valinor. I always said radagast was a nutter.

Hey! I like Radagast!
But that would be a cool name, wouldn't it. I still like Kahbûm though... :P:

How can you like Radagast? He doesn't do enough to even warrant an opinion!
