Heh, that's funny. I only just yesterday discovered that the name of a
character in a trilogy I'll write if I ever get around to writing books, a
character who, in the first book in which he appears, seems to be a shy,
soulful, if somewhat strange guy, but ends up the trilogy by basically
trying to take over a planet, actually means "for ruling" in Elvish (as
in, "One ring to rule them all" etc.). It's so perfect! And I didn't do
it! Glad to hear that DWJ has similar experiences ;-).
