Quite. I was telling myself off, not you. I've added a wink to make it clearer. :)

EGLERIO is correct. So is your reasoning.

VILYA is correct too, but the reason is that Juliet drinks a...

Hang on, I didn't even *type* 'corrupted' in the clue, so of course it isn't an anagram indicator! ;)

Huey:

Not 'End.' An interesting idea, though. 'Corrupted' isn't an anagram indicator.

All correct! :) Will put them in when I have a moment or two.

I don't get the 'plastic Roman' bit, though.

I would have posted ROG ages ago. Just didn't think GOR was a valid synonym of dirt. Oh well. ;)

So …

Is there a RATIN? That would give IT backwards within a confused NAR.

I found the Irish word CAOR, which I think is a small piece broken off a sod or turf, which is ROAC backwards.

'It' is also a pronoun, but I couldn't get anything from that, either.

I suspect the remaining names are rare and we probably need to look in the indexes at the back of the HOME books.

Hang on ...

Is the first E ELROS - L inside ROSE?

A bit naughty not to include an anagram indicator, if so. ;)

Which gives us ALMIEL, the sister of Anardil.

You could, especially with the very last one. There's something really joyful and relaxed (and perhaps also relieved!) about the introduction he wrote for it.

Can't add much more to what has already been said, other than that I agree and am eternally grateful for all Christopher Tolkien did. A meticulous guardian and editor and a man of huge integrity.
