     I don't think it makes him a plagiarist. [In reply to]  

After all, it's not as though these names are copyrighted!

Actually, I already knew this. I read a letter of Tolkien's (or something. it may not have been a letter) that referred to Thorin and Co. as " A rabble of Eddaic named Dwarves.

"It was like a great shadow, in the middle of which was a dark form, of man shape maybe, yet greater; and a power and terror seemed to be in it and go before it." ~FotR
