Okay, so; in a strange spurt of geekiness today, I started writing down everyone's name in Tengwar, which is the Elvish script of Tolkien's making. In tribute to our faithful membership, I have collected these doodlings into a little collage-type-thing that I shall post here. Smile

NOTE: Anyone can learn to do Tengwar for English. I used this resource as my basic guide, and this one for help with vowels and diphthongs.

ANOTHER NOTE: I have probably made tons of mistakes doing these; since I am yet a novice. Also, some of this is a little messy; forgive my poor calligraphy. Finally, I've hacked some of the usernames so they fit Tengwar better (i.e, Roo's name is just Kangaroos, since I didn't have numbers available to me).

FINAL NOTE: Sorry about the accidental 'i' in 'skrbblz', skrbblz. Very Happy

Here she is:

Thanks, guys! Smile -hugs to Fox!-

And yup! Generally speaking, the number of actual characters in a name spelled in Tengwar will be equal to the number of consonant sounds. This is because the Tengwar is what's called an abjad; each consonant sound has its own letter, and the vowel sounds are handled by diacritics (little marks above the letters).

Thus, the first character in my name (the thing that looks like a 'P') is the letter for the 't' sound. The second character is the 'l' sound, and the little marks above it indicate the 'ee' sound between the two.

</geekOut>

Soyeah. That's how it works. Thanks guys! Smile

heeeeeey, sooooo.... i did some of your names in japanese Very Happy hehe~ my handwriting isn't much and there are plenty of errors and some of the names have more possibilities for better translations, but here goes~

First up we have, from the top: Deathblade (the easiest one, sounds like "shiba" and means very literally "death blade"), Gloom (sounds like "Yuushuu" and means "deep contemplation, meditation and gloom"), Skrbblz (sounds like "Rakugaki" which means scribble or graffiti) and Fayte ("Unmei" meaning literally "fate" -- "un" by itself is luck and "mei" by itself is life)



Next up we have, from the top: Shadow Dragon (also very easy one, sounds like "KageRyuu" and meaning the literal), Common Goods (pronounced "KyoutsuHin" and also verrrrry literally translated where the first two characters mean "common" and the last means "goods"), and Blossom (pronounced "Saki" and the verb-y kind of form of her literal name)



And finally, we have Jade who gets a special one because hers is sooooo long. The first two characters mean literally jade/emerald, the middle one is dragon (same as the one in SD's) and the last two mean spectre/ghost/phantom. There were tons of things to choose from for the last bit, nothing meaning quite spectre. I almost went with vengeful spirit (mononoke <- you guys might know that one, eh?) but anyways, altogether it sounds something like "Suigyoku Ryu Yuurei"



Enjoy~
