[edit] Etymology?

After looking at what Ryan Einstein wrote, I'm not so sure that "hairy woman" is the best translation...trying to figure something out. Thoughts? --Holdwine Meriadoc (Talk/Contribs/Edits)

It would, at most, be hair-woman. "Hairy" is a rather liberal interpretation. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:47, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
I think if the name is simply a compound of the two parents it's a little silly to give a translation: it would obviously create a silly unusual "meaning" if you mash the two together. I think we remove the translation (unless one can be sourced), and just direct people to the other two articles for more information. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 19:51, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
