Description

Need your name translated into Sindarin, Quenya, or Adûnaic? Or do you want your name transliterated into Cirth or Tengwar? Or do you want both? You’re in the right place!

How this will work:

First, I (your translator, Fiona Jallings) will research your name’s meaning. If you prefer to make your own meaning for the name, then we’ll use that instead. I have an article about some considerations for name-translations that you may find helpful: Challenges in Translating Names from Our World We’ll work all this out over e-mails. Sometimes my website’s e-mail address gets automatically sorted into the spam folder, so keep an eye out for any correspondence from RealElvish.net!

Second, I’ll translate it into the language of your choice. There usually is multiple possible translations for a name, and I’ll need you to choose the one you like the most.

Third, I’ll transliterate your favorite name into the writing system of your choice. I’ll send it to you in a PDF, which is best for getting high-detail on the text and for printing. If you want a different type of file, let me know!

Available Languages:

I’ll use the appropriate dialect for the writing system you choose.

  • Quenya – The language of the Elves of Valinor, and of the Noldorin Exiles. It’s also used as a ceremonial language in the Númenórean kingdoms, like Gondor.
  • Sindarin – The Lingua-Franca of the Elves of Middle-earth. It’s also used as a language of the courts of the Númenórean kingdoms, like Gondor.
  • Adûnaic – The language of the Númenóreans. This language has only a limited amount of vocabulary and grammar that is known, so the translation you request might not be possible.

Available Writing Systems

  • Tengwar, General Use (also called Classical Mode when used to write Quenya). This mode of Tengwar has the vowels as little marks over the tops of the consonants. You can see an example of this on the bottom ribbon of decoration on the title page of Lord of the Rings, or on the One Ring. It’s used to write English, Sindarin, Quenya, Black Speech, and Adûnaic.
  • Tengwar, Northern Variety/Mode of Beleriand. This is the mode of Tengwar that has the vowels as individual letters, not marks over the tops of the letters. You can see an example of this on the door of Moria. It’s used to write English and Sindarin.
  • Cirth/Dwarvish Runes. This writing system is native to the Sindarin Elves, but was adopted by the Dwarves to write their own language. You can see an example of this on the top ribbon of decoration on the title page of Lord of the Rings, and the inscription on Balin’s tomb. It’s used to write English and Sindarin.

Popular Fonts:

These are the fonts I like to work with. I have pretty much every Tengwar font available on the internet, but these ones I prefer for their beauty and readability.

Tengwar Telcontar by Johan Winge
Beautiful and easy to read, this elegant font is my all-time favorite. It looks like the band of Tengwar on the title page of Lord of the Rings, and it flows together beautifully.
quote-telcontar

Tengwar Annatar (Italic) by Johan Winge
Also beautiful and easy to read when not in Italics, this is the fandom’s all-time favorite. It looks like the tengwar on the One Ring, like Sauron’s personal handwriting.
quote-annatar

Tengwar Noldor by Dan Smith
Sharp and angular, this stately font looks like a something from a Gothic text.
quote-noldor

Tengwar Parmaite by Måns Björkman
Strong and elegant, this font is easy to read and looks like it was written by a deft Elven hand.
quote-parmaite

Tengwar Gothika by Enrique Mombello
Thorny and elegant, this is one of the classic early Tengwar fonts.
quote-gothika

Cirth Erebor by Dan Smith
This is only game in town for Cirth. Luckily, it’s a good game. It’s beautiful, elegant, and strong.
quote-erebor
