Mark T. Hooker is a visiting scholar at Indiana University's Russian and East European Institute (REEI). Retired, he conducts research for publication. Next to his articles in numerous Tolkien journals and Tolkien Studies, he is the author of the several books: Tolkien Through Russian Eyes, A Tolkienian Mathomium and The Hobbitonian Anthology.

He coined the term Tolkiennymy[1] to describe the study of Tolkien’s use of names from existing languages. This branch of study examines the etymologies (origins) of names such as Bilbo, Boffin, The Yale, and Tom Bombadil.
