Tumnus and Orruns

Autumn is in Latin Autumnus. An Englishman would pronounce it like ... "Oh, Tumnus!" (I recall Susan saying that broad hint in Horse and His Boy).

Orruns reminds very clearly of Ul-Orruns = "Al-Orans" (of Arabia)

Who said CSL lacked imagination when it came to naming? If JRRT invented a language to construct his names in, CSL seldom missed a chance at some in-joke./HGL
