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.
