40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
He Had Many Nicknames
When the hobbits first meet Aragorn, they refer to him as Strider. As it turns out, that’s just one of the many nicknames that Aragorn accumulated over the course of his life. He was also known as Longshanks and Wingfoot.
Additionally, he was given the pseudonym of Estel as a child, and as a soldier for Gondor, he adopted the name Thorongil. Needless to say, Aragorn’s identity was a bit flexible, and his name was even more so. He was willing to become anybody at the drop of a hat, as long as that person didn’t have to be king.
