Strider, or Stick-at-naught Strider, was a nickname given to Aragorn by the people of northern Middle-earth (as for example at Bree) during his time as a Ranger. The name seems to refer to the long legs of the Rangers, who were of Númenorean blood, compared to the shorter-legged Bree-men. Though Aragorn considered the name scornful, he took it as the name of his royal house: translated into Quenya, it became Telcontar.
