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

4 Rivendell
5 Osgiliath
6 Esgaroth (Lake-Town)
7 Isengard

"They are taking the hobbits to Isengard!"

It just sounds beast!

8 Rivendell
9 Minas Morgul

Witch-king lives their!

10 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.

The Contenders
11 Angmar

The Witch-King of Angmar

12 Erebor (Lonely Mountain)
13 Edoras
14 The Undying Lands

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

15 Númenor
16 Mordor
17 Fangorn Forest

Treebeard lives their!

Fangorn is also Treebeards real name. His nickname is Treebeard

18 The Uttermost West
19 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!

20 Valinor (The Undying Lands)
21 The Shire

One of the most calm places in the entire series.

22 Nargothrond
23 Withywindle
24 Minas Anor
25 Hobbiton

Just sounds cool. Hobbiton.
