We decided to keep the names... [In reply to] Can't Post

because when we first tried changing them, we still had some practically the same (like Sam/Samantha, Merry/Mary) and then the other ones no one could agree on (What's closest to Frodo? Ferrah? Frida?) and some people thought we should just ditch the names entirely and come up with ones of our own.

People all had different opinions on it, and I myself was torn, so I just wrote it with the original names and figured they would be easy enough to change when the time came. But it seems the time never came, so we just stuck with them.

Looking back, it could have been really fun to try and modernize/feminize them. But at the time, we were so busy thinking about other things (time, casting, locations, etc) and just finishing the script, that it kind of got rushed. So, there was some thought that went into it, but ultimately it was lack of thought I guess that we ended up with it :P
