Longshanks

Bill Ferny’s nickname for Strider

A name used by Bill Ferny as he sneered at Strider and the Hobbits on their departure from Bree. The name is in fact related to Aragorn's other name in Bree, 'Strider'. It simply means 'long-legs', and relates to his considerable height and the long length of his stride.
