Accents in Dwarven Names[edit]

I was just following along when I added accents to the names of the Dwarves in Thorin and Company. But where are the accents coming from? They're certainly not from the The Hobbit. I'm speaking specifically of Fíli, Kíli, Óin, and Glóin. Any know the source? Thanks. --Ebakunin 19:23, 27 May 2006 (EDT)

I agree, not sure where they came from, I'm guessing Wikipedia which sometimes uses less conventional canon such as the accent in Noldor. I'll do a bit of research but I would guess non-accented is the way to go, although Wikipedia must have some sort of reference behind it or they wouldn't have done it in the first place. --Hyarion 00:03, 28 May 2006 (EDT)

Fili and Kili.[edit]

How can Fíli and Kíli be twins?? Because in the family tree in Appendix A of LOTR it is given that Fili was born in the year 2859 of the Third Age while Kili was born in the year 2864.--Legolas 08:01, 7 November 2007 (EST)

Good catch, I don't see any evidence that say they were twins so I have removed that statement. --Hyarion 11:01, 7 November 2007 (EST)


Fíli and Kíli definitely 'carried a bag of tools and a spade' when they arrived at the Unexpected Party, but does that mean they were used as weapons?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  17:54, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

They're tools. If memory serves, they lose them at the Misty Mountains, and never use them as weapons. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 21:20, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
