Re: Rob & Green Men
I am so thankful you replied and didn't think me a wee bit on the loony side.
Now that you mention it, I do remember reading that Tolkien used the Green
Man folklore for his Ents. You must, indeed, be an authority on LOTR. Books,
pages even!!! I'm impressed!
According to my character-naming book, Green Knight is given as a meaning for
the name Bredbeddle. Who was this person, if he be a person at all?
Also, there is reference to Green Men in Roslyn Chapel legend. Could a tree
spirit have lived in the ancient yew that grows near it?
I look forward to any more information or legend you or any of the others are
willing to share.
