Learn how to write your name in Elvish in only ten minutes. Have you ever wondered what your name would look like in the Elvish characters created by J.R.R. Tolkien for the Lord of the Rings? Want an Elvish tattoo, but don't know where to get started?

The way the vowels are in Elvish is just like in Hindi, Bengali, and pretty much all Sanskritic languages.

Wow..I'm amazed at the language he's created.

This is AWESOME!

That is really cool! I think Tolkien was a professor of languages and he could speak all sorts of languages. He probably based Elvish off of a bunch of other languages like you said Osprey.

Tolkien WAS a very skilled linguist and DID base the languages in his books from existing or dead languages.

There are just way too many similarities to Devanagari (the script used in Hindi, Sanskrit, Nepali, and a few other South Asian languages).

What do you do if you have two vowels in a row? For example, my last name is Cook. Would I just put two O symbols above the C?
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 9:25:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
or one over the c and one under??
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 9:36:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not too sure on that maybe you can e-mail him.

This is surprisingly entertaining...
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 6:46:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
my understanding for two vowels in a row is that you place the first over the preceding consanant and put the second on top of a placeholder. i could be wrong so feel free to correct me.

Im to lazy to go through all of that.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 7:01:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
man somebody had to be really dorky and bored to make that thing
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/27/04 - 8:09:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
what it really reminds me of is Hebrew...except hebrew is written in the opposite direction...and the vowels alternate top and bottom...but that is because they where added later on....so really come to think of it...it is nothing like hebrew at all...

If you have two vowels in a row you put the first vowel over the consanant, and the second one goes over a placeholder...just like gizmo said. I even asked the dude who made the website because I had that problem with my name too

Technically, though, "Cook" only has one vowel since only one is pronounced. Tengwar isn't supposed to write the same way letter for letter as English, it's supposed to be phonetic.
