If anyone is interested in naming a sword her is a list of Elven used-blades from Middle Earth.

None of these names and meanings are mine.
They are the property of JRR Tolkien.

Another Note:
Aeglos was a spear. All the others are swords

A good place to look up Tolkien info is Tolkien Gateway

Nice, as always :clap: Your lists are very handy :D
But there's something I don't get. Maybe you could help me?

Anglachel and Gurthang are the same sword, right? I thought they belonged to Beleg, but I also read that they were in possession of Túrin.
And in another register I read that it was also named Mormegil (Black Sword). What is the truth?

I'm sorry that I ask so much...If you get tired of it, please tell me:)

Thanks in advance ^^

I don't mind answering questions! :)

Maeglin’s father Eol, forged both Anglachel and Anguriel out of a meteorite
while he was still living in Doriath. When Eol left Doriath to move to Nan Elmoth
he gave Anglachel to Thingol as payment for leasing rights.

Years later when Beleg requested permission to leave Doriath in order to join
Turin, he was allowed to choose a sword to take with him, and he chose Anglachel.
After Turin accidently killed Beleg, he took Anglachel with him to Nargothrond.
There he had it reforged and renamed it Gurthang. Turin became so renowned
for his skill that he was often called Mormegil

Hope that helps.
