Hah!  I LOVED Torin's Passage!  But Ysuran is quite right and I didn't see the match as I was pronouncing it differently.


"Turrin"?  "Tourin"?

'ou' is something we don't have alot I believe. Maybe change the starting letter? As the german start sounds a little like dj (as in djinn), what about:

Djurin? Djorin?
Churin/Chorin? (as in cha-cha-cha)

Everything can be seen in a constant flow, just beneath our eyes, no matter how solid it looks, the shape of existence is an everchanging illusion, which has many different forms in the time span of eternity, much like true music, which reflects everchanging emotion and form and concepts which seem hard to understand, but are learned extinctively from experiences previously felt.

"Chukrin" perhaps?  The second "h" in "Chuhrin" is pronounced like the "ch" in "loch", IIRC, and it's probably likely to become a "k" sound when spoken by those whose langauge doesn't have that sound.  On the other hand, a "sh" sound might be possible too, though I'm not as certain about that.  Tolkien did mention that his humans often pronounced that sound as a "sh" when speaking elvish though, I think.  It was something like that anyway. 

Or maybe we could even have the "ch" become "sh", producing something like "Shukrin".  I'm not sure how likely such a shift is, but it doesn't look too implausible to me. 

Edit: BTW, doesn't anyone think of Tolkien when Turin is mentioned?  :P

I like the Churee / Chukrin / Chuhrin ones best as they have harsh sounds to them.  Anything along those lines  *nods sententiously, giving support if no new ideas* ... :p
