“I will give you a name…and I shall call you Sting.” Bilbo Baggins
Sting was an Elven dagger made in Gondolin during the First Age. After wielding it during the Quest for Erebor, Bilbo Baggins had it engraved with the Sindarin text, Maegnas aen estar nin dagnir in yngyl im. Translated into English, it reads, “Maegnas is my name, I am the spider’s bane.” The Appendix of The Silmarillion defines the element maeg in Sindarin as meaning “sharp” or “piercing”. During the Third Age, it was wielded by Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins.
