Inwinórë (England)

“Remember, remember…the Fifth of November.”

And to help you remember that, in celebration of the date, I have prepared a gift map as usually we do here in Quenya101. Here it is England map etymologically translated into Quenya. There are many Tolkien fans from UK (the most renowned one among them, Paul Haigh) and they really deserve this map!

One more for the collection!

    Hi there – I’ve done a map of Scotland with Elvish names, if you want to see it (just the place names, not the script)

    Could you please do a Quenya map for Caletonya. (Also, how did you get comments equipped on Tumblr? I didn’t think that was POSSIBLE.)

    • Honestly, humbly, I’m not sure if I can!

      Actually this idea has come to my mind when I was making the Inwinórë map, but then I stumbled upon some difficulties like: Scottish place names AND a good map to use. I couldn’t find a Scotland regions map without anything written on it to work on. Do you know where I can find it?

      Perhaps, if you help me with the map; I can try to accomplish the task even though it’s not gonna be easy. What do you think?

      • here’s a little thing I came up with – still a work in progress

        • Nice map!!! I saw some words that got my attention though as they don’t look like Quenya. How did you come up with them?

          • Well I first found this old book about the origin of place names, and that was where it started from then I started from there, and I worked from my copy of Ruth S. Noel’s “The Languages of Tolkein’s Middle Earth” and started from there, about August 2012.
            I put them into a spreadsheet, with the place names, then the original Gaelic or Norse or other name and then the meaning, and put the Elvish name in the last column.
            Granted not all of them are 100% accurate and I might have fudged a little bit of Sindarin in there on one or more terms but I’ve tried to keep it Q as best as I could.

    V – But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona…The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

    Guy Fawkes – A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.
    Remark (6 November 1605) as quoted in The Dictionary of National Biography Vol. 6 (1917); He is here invoking a version of a famous statement of Hippocrates, also translated as “Extreme remedies are very appropriate for extreme diseases.”

    … to blow you Scotch beggars back to your native mountains.
    Remark as quoted in “Gunpowder Treason and Plot” (1976) by Cyril Northcote Parkinson. It was said in response to one of the lords of the King’s Privy Chamber, who had asked what Fawkes intended to do with such a large amount of gunpowder.

    Remember, remember, the 5th of November
    The Gunpowder Treason and plot;
    I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
    Should ever be forgot.
