    Here's a hint...

    Itharas was close and it's definitely a person...

    And of course we can't forget the original...

    Closest so far! I will take this although this was not the name I had in mind. Aragorn also took the name Thorongil in his early years as he aided Gondor and Rohan.

    After some thought I wondered: was this outside the rules since I believe this was only mentioned in the Return of the King appendices? I apologize if it was and pass to Boraxxe unless he wants to give it to Itharas? I suppose either one had the right person!


    Side note: I quoted Ironcrown when I really should have quoted Itharas again. I was trying to emphasize that it was a person instead of a place or object.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    I will pass this on to Itharas since she guessed Aragorn first and this ended up being accepted.

    Note:

    Aragorn -> Estel
    Aragorn -> Strider
    Aragorn -> Telcontar
    Aragorn -> Elessar
    Aragorn -> Evinyatar
    Aragorn -> Thorongil
    Aragorn -> Longshanks
    Aragorn -> Wingfoot

    It seems Aragorn had a few handles.

    Thanks Boraxxe.

    Okay this should be fairly easy.

    I would say that is a Hindu mantra rather than Buddhist .

    I am neither a Buddhist nor a Hindu, but I believe the syllable I was intending could be considered both Buddhist and Hindu.

    Oops, I guess I have no knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism . It's just that I've heard the 'Om Shanti' at Hindu temples quite a lot, and never at Theravada Buddhist Temples.

    I would guess Ungoliant, who tried to eat everything she saw, including treasure, the Two Trees, Silmarils, and Morgoth himself. Her hunger was so great that she eventually ate herself.

    Coincidentally:

    The nameless
    From The Two Towers
    Far, far below the deepest delving of the Dwarves, the world is gnawed by nameless things.

    From The Lord of the Rings:

    Tom sprang away, and breaking off a hanging branch smote the side of the willow with it. 'You let them out again Old Man Willow!' he said. 'What be you a-thinking of? You should not be waking! Eat earth! Dig deep! Drink water! Go to sleep! Bombadil is talking!'
    Old Man Willow perhaps?

    Not Old Man Willow either.

    Interesting answers all, so far.

    The correct answer will name one that is actually noted in the text as potentially eating the world.

    Hmm... actually noted as eating the world... Are you sure it's not Ungoliant?

    Oh wait, you said "that". So that would mean it's not a specific character. Okay in that case: "This thing all things devours" with the answer being time
