The idea of elves is a really old one. The word elf is found throughout the Germanic languages and seems originally to mean white being.
Elves are popular in Germanic mythology and folklore. They are said to be magical beings that live in forests and other natural places. Over the years the charetors and what an elf is, has evolved. One can hardly think that one of Santa’s helpers is also the same word used to descripe an elf in fantasy literature, but they all derive from the orignal German idea of an elf.
Elves are said to be beings that are very powerful and have great magical abilities. Elves live in the world but they might not be seen by everyone. Elves can be seen as the good guys because they help out with humans, elves try to keep peace between the good and evil.
The elves are a race that has been around for eons. The elves have used various names throughout history, from the Elven kingdoms to today’s age.
Many sources of inspiration have inspired the elven names through the ages. One popular origin is the lore of J.R.R Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings series, published in 1954-1955 and introduced the name “Elrond” to English speakers. Also from that series are the names Legolas, Arwen, Galadriel, or Thranduil. You can get a cool name like this using the elf name generator tool on this page!
