The name Gandalf derives from the Old Norse words gandr (magic staff) and álfr (elf), thus a protective spirit who wields a magical wand. “Many are my names in many countries, he said. Mithrandir among the Elves, Tharkûn to the Dwarves; Olórin I was in my youth in the West that is forgotten, in the South Incánus, in the North Gandalf; to the East I go not.” – Gandalf, “The Lord of the Rings. The Two Towers”
