Item naming for my theme, please help. (in Contests)


AdminShade July 24 2010 8:06 AM EDT

So I have a theme which is loosely based on the 14 powerful spirits of Arda, the world we know as the world of The Lord of the Rings.

I now am close to naming my 5th item on my Lords of the Valar minion of my character (look it up if you want the details) and I need a name for it.

I can't seem to be able to pick from the 3 names left to make 7:
- Aule
- Mandos (also known as Namo)
- Tulkas

The item I will have named is an Elven Cloak. It is your fine task to help me in picking a name which fits. Need more info: reply here or pm me.

Iluvatar 'the hand of life'

Elves and Men are The Children of Iluvatar.

Although I have to say I like Tal's suggestion as well but I would change it a bit to fit your theme.

Galadriel 'the guardian of Lorien'

both fine names but they don't match the theme that well. All the names I have been using this far are directly taken from the 14 spirits.

Galadriel isn't one of those spirits and neither is Iluvatar...

Alright then how about this

Aule 'the master of crafts'

The Elven Cloak gives a bonus to skills and I think the best connection to the item and your theme.
