I believe both of you, Dik and Ranger, are missing an important fact...

Tolkien wrote on several occasions that the Maiar and Valar could not reproduce with one another. It is for this very reason that he rules out the Great Eagles from being Maiar, even though there was plenty of evidence to suggest they were Maiar. So Tolkien said they could not be all because they reproduce with each other, ie Entings.

Yes, I know and Tolkien knew that Melian had Luthien but that was with an Elf not another Maiar. And yes Ungoliant reproduced with spiders (we are even sure what she is) but he offers a clear interpretation that the Maiar and Valar cannot reproduce with each other, so it appears that Ranger is in the right here... When the creator of the world speaks, we would be wise to listen...
