Sindarin Feminine Names

 Definitions are obtained from www.behindthename.com
Stress is placed on the underlined part of the name. For a helpful guide to Sindarin pronunciation go to www.mellyn.de.vu/
Some possible Sindarin translations are offered; some translations are just too complicated or tangled to bother including. Some names cannot be translated due to lack of vocabulary. Obviously this list is incomplete; I will add to it when I can.
