    Hey Ho! Join me for another look at the name of Tom Bombadil

    Yeah, thats right, another thread about Tom Bombadillo. I just finished the 2 chapters which include good ol' Tom, and the quote about who Tom is drew my interest more than it has in the past. His name, that's the only answer. Lets forget about everything else in that little quotation...

    The Elf-horse

    Tolkien calls Glorfindel's horse Asfaloth the Elf-horse several times, right here: Here: And Here: Why did Asfaloth get the special name Elf-horse, I don't think it can be just because his master was an Elf, for surely there were many more elves with horses in the Sil and they...

    Who is faster?

    Who does everyone think is faster: Asfaloth(Glorfindel's horse, and it took me forever to find his name, its only mentioned once) or Shadowfax?
