Sting The Name Game

Really simple game; here is a recap for those unfamiliar with the principle...

The object is to continue with names that have the last letter of the previous name as their first letter. For instance, if I started with Gandalf, a suitable second entry would be Fredegar Bolger. Then the next name would have to begin with the ultimate 'R' in Bolger and perhaps someone else will take up the baton...

I think if we restrict it to just people, it will be more challenging. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I have been stumped as to another 'N' character that has not been used. Someone can tell me that I am incorrect but I seem to remember...Nob and Bob!

So...my answer is Nob; but feel free to dispute this! If you think it's ok, continue with 'b'. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Galadriel, the White Lady.

UPDATE: By the way, this name ends with a 'Y'. I was trying to be clever. (I think there may be only one name that starts with 'Y'.) Oh well.

I think the posts should be a little more substantial than just providing the name. SHouldnt we put a brief description on the person as well?

Something like :

Lathspell - A name attributed to Gandalf by Grima Wormtongue

I think

I am assuming that R is right, last letter of the name proper, so my next one is Rhovanion, the Wilderland east of the Misty Mountains.
