They're nice words, but they can't really have Tolkien stuff in the Forgotten Realms setting can they? If what you are getting at is something like calling a weapon "Sword of Guruth" then it could have some sort of double meaning, as in you invent some previous wielder named Guruth that was strongly associated with the death of people/things, then yeah. Some of those words might be good names for NPCs too.

Actually it is still Quenya in FR, iirc, at least judging from small bits and pieces you see in FR books. F.ex: Quessir is quenya (from speach, compare to Quenta Silmarillion, Quenya), mellon, elenea etc. Even some names are borrowed from Tolkien (f.ex Elbereth in Salvatore's C. Quintet)
