What's YOUR Level of Dedication? - Would you? COULD you?
Last week's poll, "Which of the following names would you choose for your own child's name (be it male or female)?", drew a substantial response in my email inbox, but not quite as impressive as Dave B.'s. His dedication is undeniable! Here's what he emailed me:
I have to say i love this poll but i have a slight problem voting :) you see all 4 of my daughters are named after someone from Tolkien's books.
Elinor Arwen almost 8
Rowena Eowyn 6
And our identical twin girls who have just turned one :)
Aredhel means " Noble elf "
Aranel means " Royal elf "
Both names taken from The Silmarillion
Dave, I stand in deference to you. May the light of Illúvatar shine on your daughter's fair faces, and may the Flame Imperishable alight within their hearts as a Great Beauty is awakened within and without.
As an additional note, here is a man who wears his love of Tolkien's world on himself every day, rain or shine. This, my friends, is dedication.
