Leaflock by Gail McIntosh

Leaflock, called Finglas in Sindarin, was one of the Ents of Fangorn Forest. According to Treebeard, Leaflock had become tired, sometimes sleeping through entire seasons, and tree-like with a covering of leafy hair. Finglas, Fladrif, and Fangorn, were the oldest of the Ents of Fangorn Forest.[1]

Etymology

The name Finglas is composed by the two elements fing/find "lock of hair" and las "leaf".[source?]

The element lock in Leaflock here has the meaning of "hair" since it is a translation of his Sindarin name.[2]
