Lord Of The Rings Most Common Proper Nouns


Name the LOTR-specific proper nouns which appear at least five times in the trilogy. Some have hyphens – do NOT include the hyphen. Any very similar variations that begin with the same letters are added together in the total – i.e. ‘hobbit’ includes ‘hobbits’ and ‘hobbit-like.’ Other names for characters/places are not included in their total – variations of their name/nicknames/etc are separate entries unless it begins with exactly the same letters (i.e. Sam/Samwell are together).

Enter guesses above to begin.

  1. Hi Darin…..You asked me to give you a list of proper nouns that appear in Lord of the Rings more than 5 times which you haven’t put in….Here they are, as best as I can remember: Lobelia, Maggot, Nob, Hen (as in Amon Hen), Entwash, Halfling and Ranger. Also, why are “Ent” and “Hobbit” included but “Elf”, “Man” “Dwarf” and “Wizard” not included?
    One more thing…I love the quiz as you can see and I’ve played it many times, but why is “Hoom” included…’s not a proper noun; neither is “Curunf”!!
    Cheers Simon

  2. I think there may be some proper names that are getting left out of the list here because they are also common words. For instance, “Lhaw” comes up as an answer, from the hill “Amon Lhaw”, but “Hen” in “Amon Hen” does not – and I suspect that “Amon Hen” actually occurs more times than “Amon Lhaw”. Similarly, I wonder if “Maggot” (as in “Farmer Maggot”) is getting left out.

    I also see “Hoom” in the list of 50 missed, and I wonder whether this is accidentally being included – I think it must come from Treebeard’s dialogue, where it is just a nonsense syllable like “hmm”, and it is not a proper name.
