LAURELINDÓRENAN for #4? "Laurel" is self-explanatory, but I don't know about the rest. "Indore" is a city in India, but is there a Yorkshire village with such a name? Google is no help.

Eo- occurs as a prefix in the names of various prehistoric animals, so that could be Huey's (possibly) "serious hint". Maybe we should be looking for a Polish dinosaur named Eo-something... though...

Cursory research suggests #3 refers to the 1966 "Hobbit" animated short, where it seems Bilbo did have a love interest, whose name I haven't been able to discover. "Moonstone", perhaps?

Edit: No,...

#4 Must be Adûnaphel, name given to the only female Nazgûl according to Iron Crown Enterprises. (Is the middle bit supposed to be a sound alike for "I'm down, I fell")?

Let's try AMANDA/ADAMAN(T) or A MAN/AN ADAM.

Oh, so some of the clues refer to the films... and perhaps the actors? Is "Mrs Bilbo" the wife of Ian Holm, or Martin Freeman? (If any- I don't know anything about their private lives).

Are any of the component guesses right? E.g. Pervinca guessed "lark" as the "classic dawn bird".

Or is that N/A because of however these clues actually work?
