Trivia from Tolkien's Books

Correct, Grondy! You get the next question.
Yet I've always found it strange that there were never any hobbits called Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin, there were only Maura, Ban, Kali and Razar.
I only found the fact out recently though, so I suppose I've just got to get used to it.

Three groups of hobbits lived in the village of Tighfield, what was the know occupation of one of Sam's relatives that lived there?

Ropemaking by any chance Grondy.

Hey Grondy, can't a male have a name like Evenstar?? Can he not be an evenstar of his people?

Undomiel has the correct answer, so should post the next question.
Hey Grondy, can't a male have a name like Evenstar?? Can he not be an evenstar of his people?

Well, I'm a liberal about such things, so I don't see any problem with it; however, I suppose there are a few sticklers who would frown on the use of the name for a male. I think it really depends on one's culture, in our culture the evenstar, Venus is considered female, but there may be other cultures where it is male. In Tolkien's world the evenstar is the Silmaril worn on Eärendil's forehead as he sails his good ship Vingilot through the skies.
If you want a more definitive answer Undomiel, I'd suggest you post your question in a new thread under Characters.

Ah, That Gondorian King name of Valacar didn't marry Vidugavia, king of Rhovanion, he married Vidugavia's daughter, Vidumavi.
