Me: So there’s the Maia, Uinen, who deals with water and stuff.

Tolkien: Yeah.

Me: And then, near Rivendell, there’s the Ford of Bruinen.

Tolkein: Yup.

Me: So like, are they related? Her name is in the name of the ford, which deals with water. Is there a connection or am I just reading too much into this.

Tolkien: Yeah I dunno, it’s complicated. Maybe yes, maybe no. Names as weird.
