    Dude! So close! The house is telcontar, but that isn't his elvish name. (Someone answered it right above :))

    Moria means "black pit" or something very similar, right?

    I believe so. It's also called Khaza-dum in Cirth, the Dwarvish language.

    Of course its not his name. His name is Elassar, meaning elfstone. Telcontar is the name of the house he will found, which was also a question that was posted.

    Since no one is asking a question, here is one. Gandalf wore one of the three rings. Which one, who gave it to him and why?

    Gandalf wore the Ring of Fire, entrusted to him by Cirdan.

    "At first that Ring had been entrusted to Cirdan, Lord of the Havens; but he had surrendered it to Mithrandir, for he knew whence he came and whither at last he would return."

    Kind of a Silmarillion question, but oh well. :p

    Okay...just let me think up something really obsure...will just take a minute or so....aha, got it.

    Frodo is not referring to our Sunday and Saturday in this song. In the Hobbit culture, what days are equivalent to them?

    Easy one. *pulls out extra copy of ROTK kept in computer-side drawer* Romendacil I and II, Hyarmendacil I and II, and Teluhmendar Umbarmendal.

    OH, well, if you meant to phrase it THAT way, it makes the question rather more difficult. The new list is Tarostar, Ciryaher, Minalcor, Vinyarion and Telumehtar.

    That's what I was after. :goodjob:

    In my book it says MinalcAr but that may be due to the translation as I use the german version.

    Your turn.
