    I ran across this while looking for a place to translate my name into its Gaelic equivalent.
    Elvish :: Name Translations ::
    my name's Maetharanel (my-thahr-ah-nel)

    Hmm, that would make me Ardhoniel (Are-thonn-ee-ell). Not too shabby.:)

    Well, my name doesn't even warrant a translation! I'll probably find it's in the Orc name translator!

    Well the closest listing for my daughter's first middle name is Luthien. She should be thrilled; she is a fan of one Luthien Tinuviel. Her other middle name is Huoriel.
    I couldn't translate her first name and my elvish name sucks. You think I would have a better elvish name as I am often accused of being half-elven (its the darn pointy ears).

    My name translates as Yáviel Raina.

    I'm not sure if I like it or not.

    You and me both, Wiggum. I've never even met anyone with my real first name... and let me tell you it's a lot more obscure than Boaz.

    Odd as apparently my name means 'All' by that translator, which is the German and French meaning, but by a few I've seen before, the English meaning is 'beautiful fairy, or elf.'

    I like the English one much better :)

    They didn't have my name (I guess the more gaelic names don't rate), and their translator service is down. I'll keep you posted, if I remember.
