Just a Little News

  • I’m looking into getting a new WordPress theme. Probably one that shows a snippet of a lot of articles rather than this kind of reverse chronological one that I have now, seeing as chronology is not so important with the posts I make.
  • Thinking about submitting for a name change for Piccollo. I want something a bit more… lore-appropriate I guess. She’s from Bree-land so I’m thinking something like Abygail Thornwood or something slightly sinister sounding along those lines. Definitely going with Abygail for the first name though.
  • Still super busy with school stuff sorry! But I have lots of ideas for when I am un-busy. If you have any ideas for me or requests, whatever, let me know!

List of Names in Middle-Earth

I StumbledUpon this handy list of names for people in Middle-Earth of all genders, races and locations.

Although I usually use The Languages of Tolkien’s Middle Earth for all my character naming purposes, this is also a good list to give you some ideas when naming characters.
