Do any of you have "special" nicknames you use for the characters of LOTR or Tolkien's other works? This is just curiosity mostly, because I know I do - heheh.
Pippin: I've given him the most nicknames...Pipkin, Pip-Foo, Pippers, Pipsy...anything that happens to come out of my mouth when I see him, basically.
Legolas: Leggy, Legsy, Elf-boy, and Blondie. Mostly the latter.
Gimli: Gibley, which I sadly cannot take credit for as I got it from TTT Engrish.
Boromir: Bori or Viking Man - that last one because of Ralph Bakshi's cartoon version of him.
Faramir: Fari or Fairy Mirror, both snitched from fanfics somebody else wrote.
Haldir: Haldy. Don't really know why, I don't even like him much.
Glorfindel: Glorfy, or maybe Glory. Also gleaned from the wonderful world of fanfic.
Elladan and Elrohir: Dan and Ro. Not mine either.
Eldarion: Darry; even though he gets 15 seconds of screentime I still love him. :hug:

Yes...I know I'm odd. I think I'm far too attached to these guys, just maybe. Anyway, what about you?
