Thanks...Here's my question:

Galadriel was her chosen Sindarin name, but what two other names (proper names not nicknames) had "The Lady of the Golden Wood" also been called?

Was Bregolas actually a king? *puzzled*
I should probably have said "two of the kings" not "the two kings" because there were more than two... Azaghal should certainly count.

Hm...

Where did Nienor meet her brother Turin and not know him? (before they married each other?)

That's a hard question to word, if it's too confusing, tell me.

Allrighty.

What year [circa, anyway] did Thingol forbid the Sindar to speak Quenya?

Question

It's Before the Dagor Aglareb(75 FA )
and after the Journey of Turgon and Finrod(50 FA)

So I guess that Thingol forbid the Sindar to speak Quenya circa 65 years First age

If you are including the Years of the Trees in the First Age, then there are five. Finwė, Fėanor, Fingolfin, Fingon, and Erenion Gil-Galad. If you you are refering to the First Age counted from the first rising of the Sun, then there are three. Fingolfin, Fingon, and Gil-Galad.

Technically yes, but I was going to say the guy who told Beleg about Turin's whereabouts, but I thought that was too easy...

Go for it.

My my Lind., just not your day is it.

Actually, that's strange. You would think it would be given by the same elf who gave Dor-Lomin to Hador Lorindol, which would be Figolfin. [Both gifts are given in the same paragraph in The Silm]. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Finarfin.

Whatever the answer is, I'd like to know where you go it.
