whoops, shouldn't have assumed that the given fathers didn't have their own fathers listed.

Great quiz. Loved it much.

coyotesfan2342, you're on Sporcle. I think that alone makes you a nerd.

Glad to see Elladan and Elrohir accepted for Elrond.

Eowyn is Theoden's daughter, isn't she? Why is she not accepted?
Nov 13th, 2010 at 21:23 GMT
Nope - Eowyn is Theoden's "sister-daughter"... that is, his niece. After Theodred's death (just before we meet them), Theoden is childless.

I would have liked to have seen some from The Silmarillion or even just some of the names taken from the appendices.
Nov 15th, 2010 at 21:03 GMT
@Heimdll - I did consider that but I wanted to make the quiz more accessible. As it is, Gálmód, Beregond and Otho are still proving to be quite a challenge for many, although clearly not for you :-)
Nov 16th, 2010 at 01:15 GMT
@CrazyCat- i did enjoy this quiz and that is not to say that i got all of the answers, i did miss beregond (i only remembered the steward by that name) but i do see your point though
Nov 19th, 2010 at 00:42 GMT
I did a lot worse than i thought i would have.. great quiz though

Why isn't this an Editor Pick?!
Mar 10th, 2011 at 21:23 GMT
Nice quiz. When in doubt, try rhymes and alliteration!
Jun 18th, 2011 at 01:25 GMT
Nice quiz! Gálmód was definitely the toughest (and I'm ashamed I forgot about Bungo).
Jul 5th, 2011 at 20:11 GMT
very nice quiz! I think I spent 5 of my 7 minutes wondering who Galmod was. :)
Sep 17th, 2011 at 03:10 GMT
Bah. I literally just put down The Two Towers, as I was inspired by the chapter "The King Of The Golden Hall" to try the quiz with Gandalf's names, but, despite Grima being all over that chapter, I completely missed him.
Oct 17th, 2011 at 19:15 GMT
There was a guy named Paladin? I guess that's where the word comes from...
Dec 8th, 2011 at 23:09 GMT
You could include Elladan and Elrohir alongside Arwen.
Dec 12th, 2012 at 21:21 GMT
Any reason why Elros, Elladan, Elrohir, and Anarion are accepted as correct answers but don't show up?
Dec 13th, 2012 at 20:11 GMT
Now that was a hard one. Some were obvious (like Aragorn, son of Arathorn, and Gimli, son of Gloin), but I had trouble with half of them and guessed based on the sounds of their names.
Dec 13th, 2012 at 20:36 GMT
I thought it was just LOTR and missed the Hobbit bit, which was a bit stupid and annoying for me. Still, great challenge, got half of them.

Thank you for accepting Strider for Aragorn.
