[edit] Queen Elizabeth

Something hit me when I just quickly read the etymology section - I happened to read Elizabeth instead of Elbereth! Elbereth, having the element bereth (queen), and Queen Elizabeth (I) - the similarity of the two names cannot be a mere coincidence! This must have been noted before? Surely Tolkien must have thought of this? --Morgan 14:40, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
