Sliding Doors

Holly Golightly was supposed to be Connie Gustafson.

Hermione Granger might have been Hermione Puckle.
Scarlett O'Hara almost was Pansy O'Hara.

And in pencilled notes on early drafts of The Hobbit, Tolkien noted that “Gandalf” was the name of the chief dwarf and “Bladorthin” was the great wizard. 

Bladorthin the Big? Not the same.

More character names that didn't make the cut.

  1. Bladorthin the Big sounds like a really bad Urinary Tract Infection.
