This is an alphabetical compilation of names appearing in ICEís Arnor realm module. It is meant to serve as a reference guide for the linguistic developments that were undertaken in the second edition of that module. The vast majority of the research was conducted by David Salo, a noted Tolkien linguist. Additional contributions on many of the Germanic names were made by Arden Smith, also a highly respected linguist in the study of Tolkienís writings. Chris Seeman and Jessica Ney-Grimm were responsible for the evaluation and editorial selection of the forms to appear in Arnor: The People and Arnor: The Land.
