Linta would be my first choice. It's Quenyan for "swift"

No doubt in my mind that I would take three swords....Anglachel, Glamdring and Ringil! Definately those swords....without a doubt in my head!

One of the girls there has named the sword she uses Pejder, a name usually only owned by elderly men. :hahaha:

I've tried to find a name for "my" sword, but I haven't come up with something yet. Maybe "Skarptann"- Sharp tooth. (Which would be kinda ironic too, as the aluminium swords we use don't even have something that resembles an edge ;) )

Hum.. Acctually, I think that naming a sword without looking at it is hard. A sword can have many different qualities, and I think you should name your sword after its best quality. Therefore I can't say what I'd name it too, it would all depend on the sword.

Though I liked Peredhil's suggestion Lissequalmë = Sweet Death.

Akhâsada, Into the Void.
Yes, it's silly to name an Elvish sword in Adûnaic. If I had to do Sindarin, maybe Therilind, Song of Power (is that right?), or something similar.

I like Arco's name 'Into the Void'; it's Cúmanna in Quenya.

Another one: Umbarúruva, Fiery Doom, but it's not as good as some of the others.
