Talk:Sméagol

I had heard that Sméagol and Déagol were Old English names for Cain and Abel. Does anyone here know if that is true? --Narfil Palùrfalas 12:40, 14 June 2006 (EDT)

I don't think so. I know there have been comparisons between them but I don't believe the names have any link. Smeagol comes from smygel in OE which means burrow if I'm not mistaken. --Hyarion 13:50, 14 June 2006 (EDT)
