I really don't know where this should go, so please move it, someone, if it's in the wrong forum. I was reading some information on Nordic tribes and culture, and I came across a few interesting pieces that have been put into tales by both Tolkien and Lewis. For instance, there is a wolf named Fenris, who was slain by Tyr, god of War. Fenris, is of course, also the name of Fenris Ulf, the wolf chieftain of the White Witch in Narnia. Also, the goddess Freya is said to have spent a night with the dwarves, and was paid with the ‘sacred necklace Brisingamen’. Sound familier? There were a few other bits that I found that I can't remember off the top of my head, but I was just wondering if anyone had found any other mythological pieces in Tolkien's works. Of course, we know that he based bits and pieces on the myths of several cultures, but until this point, I'd never noticed anything so blantant. Anyone else have mention?
