Janet Croft's Lecture on Túrin and Aragorn

In February, Janet Croft discussed how names used by Túrin and Aragorn-- self-imposed and awarded by others-- reflects Tolkien's ideas on the themes of fate/destiny as well as free will/choice. So, I thought we could open it up to more discussion of these themes and/or the themes of names in conjunction with not only Túrin and Aragorn, but also perhaps some of Tolkien's other characters.
