Is if Gandolf or Gandalf?[edit]

I haven't read the book, so I don't know if the character's name is Gandolf or Gandalf. This winter The Weather Channel started naming winter storms. One of the named storms was called "Gandolf." When I typed Gandolf in the search box I was redirected to this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gandolf

I did an internet search and most results seem to indicate that the character's name is Gandalf.

So first, if the name of the character in The Well at the World's End is Gandolf, then we may need a disambiguation page for that name with one directing to the article on the weather channel and one to the book's article. If the name is Gandalf, we may need to add this to the Gandalf disambiguation page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gandalf_(disambiguation)

Second, there is a redirect to this article, apparently because one character is named Gandolf/Gandalf, but the character is not mentioned anywhere in the article. The reader might be perplexed as to why he was redirected to this page. The name is also not included in the section on the influence of the book on Tolkien. Ileanadu (talk) 01:11, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
