Elvish Names

Consider all names to be genderless unless specified otherwise in their meaning. That way, if you have a feminine version of a male name or vice versa, you don't need to worry about changing the suffixes in the names.

As we work to finish it, here is the incomplete version. Don't worry, there will be many more names on it soon! If you find your name missing, you may request a translation in the forums.
