Nowadays, when people think of The Lord of the Rings, it’s usually in the context of the early-2000s movie trilogy directed by Peter Jackson. But long before Elijah Wood donned pointy prosthetic ears to play hobbit Frodo Baggins, Middle-earth and its residents were first introduced in two books by John Ronald Reuel (JRR) Tolkien: The Hobbit (published in 1937) and The Lord of the Rings (published between 1954 and 1955). And, as you probably know if you’re here, the former was also adapted by Jackson into a successful film trilogy. So, if you’re searching for Lord of the Rings names for your future offspring or perhaps even a family pet (Lord of the Rings names for dogs, anyone?), well, you’ve got plenty of options.

While The Hobbit was a children’s book, The Lord of the Rings was written for an adult audience and published in three different volumes: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. When Jackson adapted Tolkien’s works into films, he did so mirroring the author’s format of a trilogy, using the titles of each volume of the novel as titles for the films: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (released in 2001), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (released in 2002), and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (released in 2003). After the success of the three original movies, Jackson opted to give the same treatment to Tolkien’s first book, The Hobbit, turning it into a prequel trilogy: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (released in 2012), The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (released in 2013), and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (released in 2014).

At any rate, both the books and the movies have amassed a substantial number of fans over the past 84 years. If you’re one of them and are looking for Lord of the Rings-inspired baby names, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 225+ names of Lord of the Rings characters from the movies and a few from the books that never made it to the silver screen.
