Talk:Professor Rashbold

From Tolkien Gateway

Name discussion[edit]

Is this the same as John Jethro Rashbold? I see both pages were written by User:Harry S. Plinkett but there is no further information about if they are related or if the one is a revised version of the other. Sage 19:16, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

The two of them are definitely not the same. Professor Rashbold is a professor while John Jethro Rashbold is an undergraduate, and undergraduates cannot be professors at the same time. Also, the story is presumably set within the 1980s so two unrelated characters having the same last name would not be unusual.Dour1234 (talk) 22:04, 10 October 2022 (UTC)
