I have been working on a story for exactly several months and I wanted to know if it is illegal to use names like : [name_m]Elrond[/name_m], [name_f]Arwen[/name_f], Eldarion, [name_m]Samwise[/name_m], Eomer, [name_m]Theoden[/name_m], [name_m]Reuel[/name_m] ( Tolkien’s middle name) and [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f]
PS: I’m a big fan of [name_m]Tolkien[/name_m] and even one of my character’s last name is [name_m]Tolkien[/name_m].
Is there a problem if I use Tolkien’s last name and these names for my story? [name_m]Just[/name_m] the name, not the character. I don’t want to get hate by Tolkien’s fan cause I adore him.
