Leaflock

Revision as of 12:08, 11 October 2010 by Mith (Talk | contribs)

Leaflock was one of the oldest of the Ents, called Finglas in Elvish, whose name referred to his leafy 'hair'. According to Treebeard, Leaflock had become tired and tree-like, sometimes sleeping entire seasons through.

Etymology

Lock here has the meaning of "hair" since it's translation of his Sindarin name.[1]
