Will someone please tell me how to phonetically-pronounce the following LOTR names/words:  Aragorn, Arwen, Arathorn, and Rohirrium? Are the r's trilled, at all?

No, the r's are not trilled in any noticeable way. The film versions portray these as fairly straightforward pronunciations.

Aragorn: AIR-a-gorn

Arwen: AR-wen

Arathorn: AIR-a-thorn

Rohirrium: Ro-HEAR-ee-yum

 

Hope that helps!
