Elvish names that sound like diseases.

To me, Angrod reminds of "angina". I do not have time to list more, but I encourage you to post, however.

Fingolfin sounds like a throat infection to me.

hmmm
nowI don't mean to be unobedient, but, what does this thread have to do with general lore?
sounds more like a creepy OOME thread to me

Well as we don't have an OOME forum for ranking purposes I suppose the general forum is the only place for it.


Feanor sound like a rash to me. And yes I know what you mean about Fingolfin Glorfindel!

Hmmm, then I'll say...I dunno
why would a name sound like a disease?
why does feanor sound like a disease?
does mouth of sauron sound like a disease
maybe the Might sounds like The Black Plague
this thread is too confusing for me

see...
that is what I meant with an OOME thread
such threads are easy to respond to and fun in a way, but as you said, it wouldn't work well as the system is post-based.

No offence Elvish Avantguardian but this is  bit of a feeble thread.


Elrond sounds like a neck disease.

*blinks* It is truly fascinating to see some of the, ahem, very diverse thread ideas the members come up with here.

Legolas sounds like something very serious, though I'm not sure what.

Glorfindel, please don't post messages like that, it's not very nice. I think this thread is a bit random, but an interesting idea nonetheless.
(If it was intended as a joke, I didn't notcie, so ignore me, I'm just trying to be officious  )

Indeed it was meant as a joke to go along with the whole thread oh, Giver of fruits.

To me, those last few posts seemed a bit out of context. But that is just me biggrin
and this is a... different topic.

I think,
Earendil (even if he is only a half-elf) sounds like an ear infection...

There are naturally Elvish words that I find beautiful, like _paptalasselindeën_ or _avosaith_ or _falastanéro_, but there are of course opposites which I find a bit ... odd.

I dislike _Galadlevnar_ "week of the Trees", and _Delduthling_ is also less than pleasing. _Bladorthin_ is a bit amusing in sound, though the meaning is alright. _Balvlaud_ is nauseating, and _Balthagron_ sounds evil (though I like it). I don't like _Egalmoth_, and _Gormagli_ is a bit odd, though I like _Ecthelion_. I don't like _Dinígwithl_ or  _Crachalaith_, and _Ulbandi_ and Garlisgiol_ aren't very pleasing.
