Although he wasn't in the book I chose Brego because I fell in love with him after seeing him in the making of specials. Such a wonderful, beautiful horse. Vigo purchased him after the movies were made and took him back to his farm in the US. Wonderful.

I took the name Aylee from my level 90 Blood Elf Rogue in World of Warcraft.  Although I have lots of toons in WoW, she is my main and I use her name for everything!  Yes guys, the secret is out...I am a HUGE nerd.  Addicted to Tolkien and WoW.  Whatever will we do with me?

So, looking at posts and comments I've seen some pretty cool names; some are from LOTR some are from other books, and some are compleatly creative and bizzar. What I would like to know his how and/or why did you choose them? By-the-way I haven't seen a single one that I didn't like. :D

For my name, I got Marriel from that good old book Red Wall.  The bell maker's daughter is named Marriel after the sound that a bell makes, you know "Marriel".  Then of course Baggins came from LOTR.

I chose Lurtz because since I saw The Fellowship of the Ring many many years ago, i became so mesmerized by how he threw that shield at Aragorn and tried (but failed) to behead him as the shield was stuck in the tree trapping his head.

Also when he got stabbed and just pushed the blade further into himself growling at Aragorn was fantastic

Ooooh sorry I missed this thread, Indis!! Here's mine but where's yours!?!

Mainly I think balrogs are just some of the coolest creatures in all of fantasy-fiction. Heck just look at the top of this page! And what's more contradictive to diabolical fire and shadow than a children's toy store??

Thus, we have Balrogs R' Us  


Oh and hey, I also loved those scenes with Lurtz, Lurtz!!

I spent thirty minutes to come up with a name that I thought would not have been used, yet would sound like a name that would have been used in Middle-earth. I used two sounds common in his elvish names: gal-, and -dir.
