Jeff, your name is really cool! It’s an old Germanic name meaning “Good Peace.”
In Sindarin the word for “good” is Maer and the word for “peace” is Sîdh.
Put these together and you get: Maerhidh or Sidhvaer. The word order is variable, with the first reflecting an old word order, and the second being a much more Sindarin word order. We’re not adding any name suffixes to these, or they’d sound like a Father name instead of a personal name. This also means that they’re be default gender neutral.
This is a great name for your Middle-earth characters, no changes necessary!
The Quenya word for “good” is Mára and the word for “peace” is Sére.
Put these together and you get a gender-neutral name: Márasére.
For a masculine name: Máraséro.
For a feminine name: Márasérie.
Again, these are all great names for your Elves.
