Melkorin or Melkian was the ancient language of Utumno, imagined by Morgoth for his own purpose. It became a court tongue of Morgoth's highest adherents such as demons and dragons but also had it's impact on Orcish (although in a debased form) and the Black Speech of Mordor.

Names supposed to be Melkian in origin:
Melkian seems to have been based on a twisting of existing languages. For example Goth and Gothmog seem to be the Sindarin Names Morgoth and Gothmog filled with new meanings (possibly because Morgoth wasn't able to eradicate the old names he reinterpreted them to his slaves and servants).
It is unknown what Tolkiens intentions for Melkian were about.The known Angbandian words show influences from old Irish, hungarian and Akkadian.The Neo-Melkorin used by the ICE-Authors was partially based on modified finnish.
