A Name For Ky's Loque

#1 Unread post by Quin » Thu Jul 22, 2010 9:40 am

I got Loque just a few days ago.

Here's the story: http://forums.wow-petopia.com/viewtopic ... 89&start=0

And a picture of her:

I'd love an elven sounding name that means something like "Kindness" or "Gift" maybe, since I got her through the kindness of a stranger. :)

Couldn't find anything in thalassian.

So I thought I'd look for Sindarin, the elven language in Tolkiens Lord Of The Rings.

"Kindness" wasn't in there and "gift" was translated as "ant" which would make a ridiciulous name.

Swedish Translations:
Kindness = Vänlighet
Gift = Gåva

Have you tried just switching your in-game language and saying those words to someone of a different race? It's possible the blood elf (thalassian?) words for them are both nice-sounding and suitable as names.

I couldn't find anything from classic/well-known elvish languages (eg Thalassian), but I did find a couple names that sound vaugly elvish or somewhat soft-souding...

Ailidh - "Kind".
Alaycia - "Noble/kind".
Eldora - "Gift of the sun".
Gytha - "Gift".
Mychaela - "Gift from God".
Adora - "A gift; beloved; adored".
Tirian - "Kind, gentle".

Hmm, a lot of really good names. I think I have to bond with her a bit more and get a proper feel for her to find that "just right" name...
