It's a typo. He was originally Lord Oluf. Over the years, it just became accepted practice to call him Lord Foul. Kind of like how we call it the Red Sea.

The way I hear it... the original name for it was Yam ha'Suf. The Reed (like a stalk) Sea.

First name: Lord

That would of course make him Lord Lord if he ever became one. Confused



Foul may well have been his last name, and Jeroth his first. But, the lords were always called by their first names only while they were alive; the last names were never used until they were dead. Notice nobody called Kevin "Lord Landwaster" until after he died. But Foul never died. He was defeated by Covenant, and some time after that, the name Jeroth surfaced. Therefore, his first name must have been Foul, and his last name was Jeroth. How's that for convoluted logic? Screwy

Or perhaps Jeroth is a translation of his original surname 'Jepanz'.

Hence the full name of "Foul Jepanz"

"Landwaster" wasn't a last name, it was a title..along with Urvilesilencer, Giantfriend, Lord-Fatherer. Not sure about Berek's Heartthew tho. That could have possibly been a last name. Or it could have been a title meaning "true of heart".

I don't think the Lords or anyone in the Land besides the Giants had last names. They had titles like Trell "Atarian-Mate" to siginify that they were married. Or Mhoram Variol-son to siginify desecendants.

I still go with the theory that Foul went by Jeroth in the early days. Smile

In my mind the "serious" discussion of this topic ended when the name "Jeroth" was identified as the only alias that has been mentioned in any of the books for Lord Foul. If however SRD steps forward and reveals something new, all bets are off. As to Jepanz... Laughing

Well the rest of his names are all descriptions, Jeroth is the only one that isn't.

Corruption.
Soulcrusher.
Maker.
Despiser.

and even Jeroth was "of the seven hells" as I already spake.

Weeeeell...he couldn't really, feasibly have been called Landwaster until after he wasted the Land Wink I suspect all the surnames were titles of a sort, as was the case in reality, centuries ago.

True, just as Jeroth wasn't given the title of Foul until he started raising chickens!
