Yep, it's really common in fantasy lit. for characters to have numerous add-ons, such as Aragorn son of Arathorn, or Lyra Silvertongue. Well I thouhgt Greenleaf was his last name, that's why I have my Sim named Lita Greenleaf (Sailor Moon and LotR hybrid). Very unique style you got there, almost like a Westernized version of anime chibis? lol
Well, THANK you, Maureen. Apparently, you read the exchange between the Oz fan, and myself. If only you were here for that back in December. LOL! I had to lay the smackdown! You shoulda seen it. There were flying chairs, and breaking glass ... It was awesome!
No, I wasn't influenced by chibis, or anything anime or manga. I think my "toon" style, as an extension of my comic strip style from "Grenades," was developed from my memories of Shultz' "Peanuts," Trudeau's "Doonesbury," and MacNelly's "Shoe." It kinda grew from that, and I imagine it'll change more as I play with it.
Hmm... If THAT'S one of your 'pet peeves,' then you have problems. LOL!
Whether it's his actual full name or not (I'm fully aware of the translation, and the Elves' lack of the usage of surnames), he's repeatedly referred to as such. Check the text. Many of Tolkien's characters were referred to by their names or nicknames in combination with their titles, translated meanings, where they hailed from, their outstanding features, or even the SOUNDS they made! "Gollum!" "Gandalf The Grey." "Thorin Oakenshield." "Nine-Fingered Frodo." "Fangorn." "Gwaihir The Windlord." "Beornings." So,-- so what? I'm not writing a treatise on Tolkien's Elves here, with a precise genealogy and meticulous Sindarin translation.
Since "Legolas Greenleaf" appears more than once in EXACTLY that form(even as a quote from Lady Galadriel herself!), I have no reservations in referring to him that way.
