Wow. What a list. I have to say I'm in a Germanic mood this morning, at least where hobbits are concerned. I'm really digging:

Adaldrida (prefer Etheldreda)
Alfrida (cousin to Alfreda / Elfriede / Elfreda?)
Eglantine (not Germanic per se, but that "egg" sound is irresistable)
Gerda (zing!)
Hilda / Hildegarde
Myrtle (again, not Germanic -- just a personal favorite)

Tolkien missed an opportunity with Ermenegilda.
