Tolkien Names

J.R.R. Tolkien was a baby name fan’s dream. Long having a fascination with etymology and languages, he actually devised several of his own, and created names specifically for his world of middle earth. We’ve collected several Tolkien names from these languages and put them together in a Tolkien names list for those looking to name their elven (or hobbit, or dwarven, etc.) babes. J.R.R. Tolkien has inspired a multitude of parents to call their babies Galadriel, Eowyn and Arwen. Check out our list of Tolkien baby names and you’ll soon find your “preciousssss.”
