#AtoZChallenge: Zaragamba, Zirak-Zigil

30 Apr

Z (1)

Zaragamba is the name of the original Hobbit family from the Eastfarthing. They are heredity Thains of the Shire. They passed it the office to the Took clan and removed the strip of land between the Baranduin and the Old Forest. It has been translated from the Red book as Oldbuck.

Zirik-Zigil is the dwarvish name for the centermost of the three great peaks of Moria. It is known to man as the Silvertine and to Elves as Celebdil.

Well, this is the final A to Z post. I hope you’ve enjoyed the posts and that I’ve kept you entertained throughout April. Look forward to your comments. πŸ™‚

      Thanks. Kind of sad it’s over. I loved doing the Hobbit and LOTR posts. I may have to keep them going. I have tons of stuff I didn’t get to use. Will think about doing an on-going series. πŸ™‚
