Omicron I Can Understand, But Arwen Is Surely A Funny Name For A Storm!

This article on the Birmingham Mail is entitled Storm Arwen: What Does The Name Arwen Mean And Who Chooses Storm Names?.

It says this about Arwen.

The name Arwen is believed to be of ancient Welsh origin and means “fair” or “good”. It is most commonly a female name.

Arwen was made famous by J.R.R Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings book series, which sees the name translated to “noble maiden” in Sindarin.

I’ve never read any of Tolkein’s books or seen any of the films, but I have played real tennis several times with one of his cousins.

He is or was a man who was involved with high-vacuum scientific equipment. He had some interesting tales about selling the equipment to the Soviet Bloc. He said that he always had a few of his cousin’s books handy, as they made excellent presents to oil the wheels of Soviet bureaucracy.

I hope everybody reading this, has been untroubled by the wrath of Arwen.
