Lord of the Rings Book Inspired Dog Names

The characters that exist within J.R.R Tolkien's Legendarium (the quasi-academic term used to refer to all of Tolkien's books from the Hobbit to LotR,) have intricately crafted backstories, descend from long and winding family trees, and whose names are derived from the multiple languages that Tolkien painstakingly spent decades creating. To name your dog after a character from The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, or The Silmarillion is to imbue it with a name that's as culturally significant as any name that can be found in our contemporary times. Characters from The Lord of the Rings books, or any of the books Tolkien has created, are individuals of merit and principle and their very names evoke the characteristics these characters are known best for; Frodo's name has become synonymous with wanderlust and kind hardheartedness, Galadriel's name has become synonymous with beauty and terror, and Fingolfin's name has become synonymous with bravery in the face of certain doom. Even the weapons and steeds the characters owned, as well as the kingdoms said characters hail from, all having meaningful names with storied pasts. 

No doubt, The Lord of the Rings books, and the other stories from Tolkien's Legendarium, can provide dog owners with an ample assortment of meaningful and elegant names to bequeath to their pets. A dog owner looking to give their pet a name that has a sense of history, and comes with a unique story behind it, need look no further than the characters in Tolkien's books to inspire their hearts and minds.
