Re Gollum - For Those More Learned than I Can't Post

Does anyone happen to know what or whom may have influenced Tolkien's invention of Gollum? Was he at all, meaning even his appearance, inspired by an actual person? Also I'd love to hear any background or speculation as to why he gave the character his signature hissss?

Many thanks!
