Turns out that to pick an official SCA name, it needs to have some level of historical validity. So they have a college of heralds who collect tons and tons of information on ancient naming practices. I mined that to make these.I thought that might have been one of the sources, though I doubt the Middle Earth info came from a recent SCA source. Maybe a 70's or early 80's SCA source! :-)
