      Do you really beleive that Tolkien sat behind his desk and "translated" or "adatpted"
      the entire list of thousand English Names and Surnames into his languages you ahve
      seen ?

      Would you beleive if a dude on the street would approch you and say :

      -- Hey babe, I know all the English names as they are in Elvish. Yea, the true Elvish
      made up by Tolkien. I speak it alla right ! Here take my list it is a good one. And I
      know every thing about Elvish, just ask me!

      Would you beleive the dude ?

      How come that you beleive a thing just because a dude on Internet has written about
      an Elvish name "Elpinoine Nilde".

      Try to think... Could it be that no one have ever published a book about Tolkien's
      Elvish names yet ? Are those who answer me more informed about Elvish that me ?
      Could it be that they just "kinds" toying and playing a game with me (like "pretending
      they know Elvish as good as I know English) ? Could it be ?

      Try, and then tatoo anything you like on any part of you body you think is best.
