Hi everyone.

I've only just realised that there is a community dedicated to Elvish so had to join straight away because the subject just fascinates me :)

I have to say though that is unbelievably difficult to comprehend, just when you think you get it right you have other symbols thrown in because they sound different or whatever.. im still confused over that one myself!

Anyway, 2 things I just wanted to ask:

I understand that the Tengwar numeral for 5 is known as lempe - right? I know what the symbol looks like, I'm just a bit stuck at spelling the word 5, so any help would be much appreciated..

Also I found an incredibly good site translating names into Elvish - here and was wondering what the more common translation of my name would be - my name being 'Hannah', would I use Almare or Eruanne? and how would that be spelt?

Any help would be appreciated!

I know of one too

I have found many great elvish and lord of the rings sites in my surfs around.I also found that arwen-undomiel.com has a great place to get an elvish name based upon the meaning of a real name or as close to as they can.If anyone needs help I also have a great place to get elvish language lessons and people to check your work.
