    A book, hmm, I HAVE to tell you, oh all right then!

    Harry Potter, Hermione is my favourite female character in the HP series as I feel that I am a lot like her, and Malfoy, well, I like both the Malfoy characters and I did a HP family test once and it turned out that I would fit quite happily in the MALFOY family. So, that's why I called myself that!

    Elladan is from Tolkien's books ~ he's the son of Elrond, brother of Arwen & Elrohir, grandson of Galadriel & Celeborn. The name roughly translates as 'elf-man' but more properly includes the elements 'El' means 'of the stars' (elves were the eldar or 'people of the stars') and 'adan' meaning 'the father of men' (the Numenoreans). Confused? ~ don't be, elf-man is fine :D :D

    PS Elladan has a particular fondness for killing orcs :fightyou:

    I made it up. Actually, (ex)singer from Nightwish has similar name, and you can say it served as an idea.

    I made it up/came out of a book .... I read Wheel of Time and was interested in the Old Tongue, so I found a site that had a few english translations of the Old Tongue words, and Ellis means Rose, Mai means Maiden .... Rose Maiden. It was an instant message screenname first, but now it's here. :)

    I made up Milloway, which was my whole name at first, but then when I started rpg'ing I needed
    a second name, and I decided that I 'd keep Milloway as the surname...
    I partly made up Árëlin, as I looked it up in the back of the Sillamarillon, where I found Árë, which means 'singing' and 'lin' which means 'sun-ray'... Really silly translation, I know, but I like the name - not the meaning (And my 'mom' in the Rpg was the kind of person that would call my something sloppy like that :D)
