Reply to: Re: Sauron, Saruman, Gandalf by Mike C
Gandalf is Old Norse, though the Old English form would have been almost identical. In the Old Norse epic the Poetic Edda there is a dwarf named Gandalf, apparently Tolkien's influence for the name of his wizard. Several other character names from the Hobbit were taken from the Prose Edda.
