Dis never married? [In reply to] Can't Post

I also noted, that neither of them is ever introduced as son of..... In a society where you carry half your (male) family tree in your name this seems very strange. Thorin is always, son of Thrain son of Thror, Balin signs the contract with son of Fundin. When Thorin introduces them in Laketown, shouldn't he introduce them as Fili and Kili sons of (whatever the name of their father was)? But no, he calls them, "the sons of my fathers daughter."
What if Dis was never married? In a lot of societies, illegitimate children were not thought as even being related to their biological father, let alone allowed to carry his name. They belonged to their mothers family only. Maybe they even have different fathers? They don't look that similar to each other, compeltely different hair and eye colour, different shaped facial features.If at all they could be half brothers imho.
