Discussing: Need a name in either Old English or Sindarin

Need a name in either Old English or Sindarin

Is "Ithilmirfain" a semi-not-stupid way to say something to the effect of "white stone of the moon?" I really do not know what I am doing and was cruising through councilofelrond.com's names database, clumping things together. LOL. Maybe there's a less awkward way to do it. Is there a not-stupid way to say that in Old English?

How about: Ithilmir ‘Lan Moon jewel white (cf. the Elvish name for Sauraman - Curunir ‘Lan – Wizard White) Ithildin *(

Are you trying to say moon-stone as in the precious gem? In the Bosworth-Toller" OE dictionary it shows stáne as the form of stán (stone), and móna or móne is "moon." Clumped together [I like the way you put that ] you'd get Mónastáne or Mónestáne. Does that work for you? ~Nessime
