Trivia Question

Well, I actually thought up a trivia question, though it might be a bit on the simple side.

The question is this- there are two names for the sword used by Aragorn and his ancestor Elendil. Well, actually one name for the blade before it was broken, the other one after it was reforged. What were the two names, and which name is which? Bonus points if you know what the names mean...

Ya! I actually know this one.

Narsil-broken, (I don't know the meaning)

Anduril-reforged, means Flame of the West

Anduril - blade after reforged, meaning 'Flame of the West'
Narsil - blade when broken and before broken, meaning 'White Light/White Flame'

Also formally called "Sword of Elendil". Used to prove the validety of Aragorn (or anyone else) as King of Gondor.

Yes, you get bonus points. And a gold star. I had to look up the meaning of Narsil to do this question, I always forget it. Of course, with my memory, it's a miracle I remember anything beyond "Renewed shall be blade that was broken".
