I know that the movie needed a youthful and good-looking Frodo (those eyes! ;) ), however when I was reading, I came to realize that in the books Frodo is much older on his journey than in the movie, is he not? In the very beginning when he was still in the Shire, I believe they mentioned him being what, 33 in hobbit years whch is their "coming of age" so like our 18? But then later on they keep saying "old Frodo" and such. Hmmm

My best friend's name is Itarildë as well! Has anyone figured out their Hobbit names? My friend's (The same one) name is Berylla Bleecker-Baggins of Fair Downs! Mine is Orangeblossom Rosy-Posy Burrows Chubb. Or, if I put my first and middle name at the same time, it's Bramblerose Chubb (hobbit) or Eámanë Melwasúl (Elven).
As for Frodo's age, he was 33 at Bilbo's birthday - if you remember, he was 33 and Bilbo 111 and together they made 144, or one gross, and the number of party guests were 144. But, the farewell feast was in 3001 (1401 by Shire Reckoning) and Frodo didn't set out from Bag End until 3018 (1418 by Shire Reckoning) so he was actually 50 :eek: when he left Bag End!!!

ril: 'brilliance' in Idril,...Idril's name in Quenya form was Itarillë (or Itarildë), from a stem ita- meaning 'sparkle'.
Exerpt from the Index of The Silmarillion:
Idril: Called Celebrindal 'Silverfoot'; the daughter (and only child) of Turgon and Elenwë; wife of Tuor, mother of Eärendil, with whom she escaped from Gondolin to the Mouths of Sirion; departed thence with Tuor into the West.
I figured out some of this thread's 'frequent vistor's' user names:
Major Mel (Mel Johnson): Amras of Dorthonion or Berilac Brandybuck of Buckland
BilboBaggins: Maglor Calafalas or Bilbo Baggins
SpiritIvy: Eldárwen or Iris
balletstar811: Siralindë (balletstareighthundredeleven)/Failariël (balletstar) or Mira/Rosie
dance4life87: Alatariel (danceforlifeeightyseven)/Lessien (danceforlife) or Camellia/Iris
BlackbirdBallerina: Eámanë or Bramblerose (me too:D)
Of course, for your full names you'll have to go to the site yourself.
If anyone wants to know what their Elvish names mean, just tell me what they are and I'll figure them out. I love to!!! It's my hobby!!!

P.S. Spirit Ivy, I'll look into that extended version on VHS!!! Can't wait!!!

So I guess I was quite a bit off on my translation, lol.

HOWEVER. We've now got 134 posts on this thread, and it is safe to assume that there are a great number of Tolkienians about, and a goodly number of them populate this board. So, reluctantly, I think the time has come to draw the curtain on this topic - until Dec. 17, of course!;)
