name. Wandlimb, (lit.) Slender-beech
An Ent-wife, beloved of Treebeard, whose name was glossed “Wandlimb” (LotR/475), though Tolkien stated that this was not a translation (RC/764). The proper translation of the name is “Slender-beech” (LotR/1131) or “Slim-birch” (RC/386), a combination of fim “slender” and brethil¹ “silver-birch” (PE17/82; SA/brethil), though Tolkien said the second element could also be interpreted as brethil² “princess” (PE17/23, 82).
