Let's face it. Arda's main sea (The one that surrounds the island of Exodus) needs a name. Please pitch in your ideas for it here.

1 - Primalus Ocean/Sea

2 - Tideless Deep

3 - Abysmal Ocean/Sea

4 - Sanguine Abyss

5 - Ethereal Ocean/Sea

 

there's my 2 cents

Arda is a Tolkien reference. Specifically, Arda is the world where the Lord of the Rings series takes place and within the world of Arda the main ocean is called Belegaer, the Sundering Seas or the Great Sea. If we want to continue the Tolkien reference another but less appropriate name would be Ekkaia or one of its variant names like Vaiya or The Encircling Sea for example.

If on the another hand we want to have more than one reference we could always draw on other works of literature like Lovecraft's Cerenerian Sea.

We certainly don't have to stick to a Tolkien theme.

I propose:  Vee Sea  (wink wink, nudge nudge)

I think the Great Sea from Tolkien would work- Simple name, easy to remember, and not everyone will understand or get the reference to more complex LOTR names. Plus, it's pretty obvious that it's a great sea.

How about the ''Orcish Sea'' has both the Orca and the Orc reference . Also the Orc comes from the Orkney Islands [north Scottland].  The nautical reference and the Tolkienian liason do exist , just a fact I threw in for fun.

How about Vaiya... Although in mythology it refers to outer space it has a nice ring to it.

Of course I like the name Vallinar too.

But I think the great sea is a good reference. Especially as you can catch a ship to travel the great sea to far and unknown lands

I think the Sundering Sea has a nice ring to it.  (It's quite sundering indeed, without a Ship...) 

Plus, it sounds epic when used to give directions: "Go south across the Sundering Sea and walk for three days.  Skirt the the ice biome to the east, pass through the fields of Things Generally Found in Fields, and at the top of Mount Long Drops (you'll know it when you see it), pick the blue flower..." etc. etc.  My Quest Sage Beard (tm) grew out a centimeter just typing the sentence!

Sinai Sea since Sinai is referenced a few times in the Book of Exodus.

This is my signature and I hope you enjoy it. - Dalferes

Has anyone of late read The Simorilian? Been a while for myself, but it would be a good source of names also.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their disinclination to do so. - D. Adams

Take your pick: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.....s_of_water

Which, if we're sticking to the meaning of the names, makes "Belegaer" (The Great Sea) as the possibly over-obvious choice, as vampiresfire originally said.  I'm fine with whatever.

Ardean...

Ardanean...

Ardic...

...sea, ocean, or abyss, take your pick.

 

So many good names proposed... personally, I think Vee Sea is an awesome play on words.

I like The Great Sea. It's really simple and easy to remember.

 

Or just Vee Sea (hehe)
