- Prince Caspian (book) - Mentioned
In The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien, there are numerous mentions of the Dwarf kings, Naín I, Naín II and another dwarf of the same name, in the royal house of Durin. This may be explained by the close friendship of Lewis and Tolkien.
In the French language, nain means "gnome, dwarf, of little size". This may be a voluntary connotation by Lewis to indicate the possibly small stature of Nain. However, this is pure speculation, as Lewis didn't develop the lineage of the Kings of Archenland, or the details of them, after Nain until the end of Narnia.
