Elvish names detailed explanation Can't Post

so if you would be kind to name me a book or two about this topic. I'm not looking for a sindarin dictionary but literally a book in which i can find explained names of our beloved characters. fansites like tolkiengateway and lotrwiki are fine but i'm looking for The Book about this.


galadriel [galad (light, radiance) + ri (crown, garland) + iell (daughter)]

thank you

I've seen some controversy here about the accuracy of this, but... [In reply to] Can't Post

The type of information you want can be found in Ruth S. Noel's The Languages of Tolkien's Middle-earth.

Such name translations are also included in the entries in both Robert Foster's The Complete Guide to Middle-earth and The Complete Tolkien Companion by J.E.A. Tyler.
