Created by[edit]

AFAIK the hounds may be in the mythos but were not created by lovecraft, so I think the article should maybe specify that these are the creation of frank belknap long and not of lovecraft. Anyone know or think differently?

  • I agree. So I included this info in the article's intro. RlyehRising 23:15, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

Etymology of the word 'Tindalos'[edit]

Does anybody know where it came from? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.118.64.56 (talk) 11:01, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I actually got an idea, it might be from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visio_Tnugdali "The Visio Tnugdali ("The Vision of Tnugdalus") is a 12th-century religious text reporting the otherworldly vision of the Irish knight Tnugdalus (later also called "Tundalus", "Tondolus" or in English translations, "Tundale")." 217.118.64.52 (talk) 11:19, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Interesting post here (http://www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/a-source-for-the-hounds-of-tindalos) suggests it's from a Solomon Islander term for ancestor spirits. -- Jake (talk) 07:22, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
