Gems of Long Lake (new discoveries)

Has there been a time when you felt that you've just discovered a beautiful new detail in Tolkien's works? One that makes them just that much more meaningful, even if "that much" is just a play on words or a bit of plot the reader has to put together by him/herself?

I have just recently discovered that Derne, as in Dernhelm, means to hide. That's a small insight into linguistics. Eowyn indeed remains hidden while she keeps her pseudonym. I was terribly proud of myself for getting this tidbit of information until I realised that this is probably no surprise to most other Downers, but who knows?

This is a place to share all those realisations and facts, big or little, and learn a few cool facts others have discovered!

So have you ever taken a dive into JRRT's books and came out with a new gem in hand?
