Dwarves have two or more names. Two of them are given at birth.
- The first is made of Kuzdul, the Dwarven language. Only other Dwarves are allowed to know it (1102 LotR).
- The second is made of Westron (35 PME), but Tolkien replaced it with Norse (41 PME). This name is for use with outsiders, or those who aren’t Dwarves.
- They are often named after other dwarves that they resemble in appearance or personality.
