Best Middle-Earth Place Names

There is a bountiful number of places featured on the glorious map of Middle-earth (The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit). This list compiles the places with the most elegant (or perhaps sinister) sounding names.

The Top Ten

1 Lothlórien
2 Khazad-dûm (Moria)

The name Khazad Dum sounds cool, just saying

3 Minas Tirith

I like this place - 2storm

Until it became Tol-in-Gaurhoth the isle of werewolves. Or is this about Minas Ithil in Gondor?

4 Esgaroth (Lake-Town)
5 Rivendell
6 Osgiliath

Should be #1. Os-Gil-y-ath

7 Erebor (Lonely Mountain)
8 Isengard

It just sounds beast!

9 Edoras
10 The Undying Lands

I didn't add this one but it gets my vote, for sure. Sounds pretty awesome to me. - BKAllmighty

The Newcomers

? Lonely Mountain (Erebor)

The Contenders

11 Númenor
12 Fangorn Forest

Fangorn is also Treebeards real name. His nickname is Treebeard

Treebeard lives their!

13 Nargothrond

Mountain realm of Finrod Felagund

14 Mirkwood (Eryn Lasgalen)

Erin Lasgalen - it a phrase caresses hearing and I want to sing it. High mountains surround Mirkvud as if fortifications, are the wonderful lakes and the rivers rich with fish and other freshwater creatures there. This majestic and wonderful forest deserves attention, I would not refuse to live one of the lives there.

15 The Uttermost West
16 Withywindle
17 Minas Morgul

Witch-king lives their!

18 Helms Deep

Ummm helms deep best battle scene of all the movies and definitely one of the best battle scenes of all time. An awesome fortress in the side of the mountain.

RIDE! Ride for ruin! And the red dawn!

19 Valinor (The Undying Lands)
20 The Shire

One of the most calm places in the entire series.

21 Minas Anor
22 Mordor
23 Hobbiton

Just sounds cool. Hobbiton.
