Where did Thorin's name come from? Thorin is named after a character in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Thorin Oakenshield was the leader of the company of dwarves seeking to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug. The names of the dwarves in J.R.R. Tolkien's books, including Thorin, were taken from Old Icelandic texts such as the Prose Edda. Tolkien also took Thorin's epithet "Oakenshield" from the English translation of the Icelandic dwarf name "Eikinskjaldi" (pron. "Ike-in-skelt-ee").
