just to source my two blue citations [In reply to] Can't Post


Quote
'Its use [the name Glorfindel] in The Lord of the Rings is one of the cases of the somewhat random use of the names found in the older legends, now referred to as The Silmarillion, which escaped reconsideration in the final published form of The Lord of the Rings. This is unfortunate, since the name is now difficult to fit into Sindarin, and cannot possibly be Quenyarin. Also, in the new organized mythology, difficulty is presented by the things recorded of Glorfindel in The Lord of the Rings, if Glorfindel of Gondolin is supposed to be the same person as Glorfindel of Rivendell.'



The Peoples of Middle-Earth, Last Writings

By the way I should rather say Tolkien looked at possibilities rather than 'various' possibilities, as the latter might suggest 'a lot' of them.
