Hiya everyone,
I have been trying to find the Sindarin translation for Enya (my 3 year old daughter.)
It means Little Fire in Irish.
I have come up with:

Little - tithen
Fire - Naur

But am unsure of how they go together.

Also on the council of Elrond name database it comes up with Noreg or Nordithen.

I am in desperate need of a second opinion!

Thanks ^-^

Hmm, we could have a Quenya *Narince.

Sindarin Naureg or Noreg is nice I think... I know a person [from Ireland] named Morag, although it's all personal taste of course. The Sindar also had a name for the bright-eyed Noldor from Aman: Lechind 'flame eyed'... seemingly leaving us with lach 'flame' too. Hmm.

Anyway, maybe *Tithenor [primary stress on first syllable]? This switches the adjective compared to *Nordithen, but I think adjective first is not impossible in Sindarin compound names -- especially with colour-words in any case [Nimloth].

I do like the sound of Tithenor as well as Nordithen, i will have to write them out and see which i prefer the look of.

Thank you so much for your help :-D
