This name was in a Nicholas Sparks book that I just finished reading. While reading the book, I was pronouncing it "guh-LAD-dree-ul," but I just looked it up online, and apparently it's pronounced "guh-LAD-ree-ell." inogolo - Pronunciation of Galadriel : How to pronounce Galadriel That site also says that Galadriel is a character in The Lord of the Rings. (I've never seen any of the movies or read the books)

The name is NMSAA, but I thought it was interesting and that it seemed to fit some of the naming styles of some of the ladies here, so I wanted to share.

I love masculine -iel names. Adriel / Hadriel / Remiel for example are gorgeous to me.

This one is too much for even me though. I think it's the extra syllable that pushes it over the edge. It's also very Lord of the Rings. Most people would assume you are a big fan. It reminds me of the names Lancelot and Guinevere. They are just so tied to their "Legends" that it is hard to see them as real names.

I like the name Galahad, but this one doesn't fly with me. I also think it's the extra syllable.. Gladriel maybe, but not Galadriel. I've never read LotR.
