I wanted to back in the 90's

Before the whole world knew about Tolkien. I guess it's good I never had kids, because on the baby name sites the ones named for Arwen and Aragorn are always teased in school ( and I know how that feels!).
After the movies came out, I thought the name Lorien would be pretty for a child, but, alas, I had none of my own.
Now in the 80's and early 90's, I had goldfish named Strider, Whizzer (wizard), Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin, if that counts!Tongue
I read a book when I was a teen about a troubled child who was in the foster system, and it was called The Great Gilly Hopkins. Her real name was Galadriel, and the social worker said, "God help the children of the flower children." I took that to mean, if I had a child named after a Tolkien character, I was a closet hippie. Darn right!
