Tolkien name-blending (game) Can't Post

Name-blending is when a couple's names get squished into one portmanteau word - examples


Quote
The popularity of celebrity supercouple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez from 2002 to 2004 resulted in their being known by the portmanteau "Bennifer" (for Ben and Jennifer) to the media, as well as to fans using the name combination. The term Bennifer itself became popular, and started the trend of other celebrity couples being referred to by the combination of each other's first names, as with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ("Brangelina") and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian ("Kimye")

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Name_blending


I wondered which couples might find themselves with a Tolkien name:

Some are easy:

Bill + Bo = Bilbo
Ella + Dan = Elladan

I can also do:
Orlando + Cristable = Orcrist
Goldie + Lumamba = Gollum


ANY MORE?

Oh, I was stuck on the Bennifer model [In reply to] Can't Post

And could only come up with

Argorn (Arwen + Aragorn)
Galaborn (Galadriel + Celeborn)

But Iíll try to follow your pattern next.

Tree-men + Longbeards = Treebeard
Dunedain + Harrowdale = Dunharrow
