Default Find your name in Elvish

Girls: http://www.arwen-undomiel.com/elvish/girlnames.html

Boys: http://www.arwen-undomiel.com/elvish/boynames.html

They have unusual names too, so don't automatically assume yours won't be there.

They've got my name, but the wrong meaning.

Mine's on there -- Caunion in Elvish (I presume Sindarin?) - means "ruler" (which is accurate. A neat sidenote, tho -- the notes up to say that "-ion" means "son of," which actually makes it more accurate, whether the list uses it that way or not -- 'Eric' technically means 'prince or ruler,' thus, "son of a ruler" is a reasonable translation ^_^

Mar - Perhaps an alternate meaning, based on which language they assumed it was derived from?

Then there's us Scandanavian ones. Mine's Erik, so it's not there. So rarely is...

I've seen several different translations for my name. "Royal fortress," "royal meadow," "from the royal fortress meadow"... All I know for sure is that it's Old English.

Eric-with-a-C (or CH) is Germanic; it would not surprise me if that and the Nordic-derived Erik share a common root, waaaay waaay back.

Crossbow: Meaning here -- "Scandinavian" entry says it means "forever ruler/eternal ruler" -- the entry there for Eric lists the same description.
