I've got a bit of a bone to pick with Tolkien...
He writes this beautiful, epic, amazingly intricate world full of detail and hidden treasures and past histories that the devoted reader can enjoy. He creates hundreds of characters, major and minor, each with their own personalities and quirks.
Then he gives the two villains of the books practically the same name! Argh!! I always have so much trouble keeping them apart.
Why couldn't it be Al and Zebadiah?
