Take a look at some of the links here. You'll find some have tables with corresponding English and German sounds.
Maybe that can help you.

Ohhh thank you so much!!! That's almost exactly what I've been lookin for!!

I'm sorry, mariya. I think there is a misunderstanding. Gandalf and Roäc are the names Tolkien gave to his characters. He had a lot of knowledge of Scandinavian and other Germanic names, and a lot of fantasy.

You cannot 'translate' these names into German.

yes we cant but here we see the strategy of phonetic transcriprion...

I know Gandalf and Roäc from both the English original and the German translation of Lord of the Rings. I have never read or heard of the other names. Think

the ones u mentioned are more of german origin because they were worked on to fit the language, Gendalf and Roec are of English

weeell, for instance, Gendalf-Gandalf, Roac-Roäc, such correlations of letters
