bladorthin [In reply to] Can't Post

John Rateliff did a two volume analysis called the History of the Hobbit and it covers the earliest drafts of the story by Tolkien. Some of the character names changed, Gandalf was originally the Wizard Bladorthin for example. Beorn was originally named Medwed. Maybe the name and its usage is a mere holdover from a name Tolkien originally planned for Gandalf.
