"Your Middle-earth name" game Can't Post

I expect people are familiar with those word games which generate "your name" for a particular fantasy/sci-fi world? Examples are probably the easier way to explain:

Generate Your Starship Enterprise name from the colour of your current underwear, and the last thing you ate (Ensign Aubergene Granola reporting for duty, sir!)

Generate your Star Wars name from a car you have driven and a medicine you have taken (Jedi Knight Zetec Loratidine, at your service).

Does anyone know if Middle-earth ones that work at all (enough to be entertaining?)

I'd expect it to be harder to sound feasible, since Tolkien mostly made his character names out of languages he'd invented, or borrowed them from mythology he'd read. this as opposed to choosing names with a certain sound (or whatever Rodenberry, Lucas et al did!)

But I bet people have had a try!

Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimė I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"
