Jumatate de om

Din cate imi amintesc, in povestile lui Ispirescu aparea un personal numit Jumatate-de-om-calare-pe-jumatate-de-iepure-schiop. Iti citez sfarsitul povestii, ca sa vezi de ce m-am gandit la Jumatate de om:

... when, soon after, the little man entered and said, "Queen, what is my name?" she asked him mischievously: "Is your name Kunz?"
"Is your name Carl?"
"Are you not sometimes called Rumpelstiltskin?"
"A witch has told you - a witch has told you!" shrieked the poor little man, and stamped so furiously with his right foot that it sunk into the earth up to the hip; then he seized his left foot with both hands with such violence that he tore himself right in two.
("The Mammoth Book of Fairy Tales" (edited by Mike Ashley, Robinson, London, 1997, p. 387)

Desigur, daca nu s-a tradus deja in alt fel...

spiridusul Rumpelstilzchen

asa apare in cartea lui fiica-mea cu povesti Grimm a editurii Polirom (una galbena si groasa) :)
nici eu nu tin minte sa fi vazut vreo traducere, mai ales ca in poveste este vorba chiar de numele spiridusului

agree  Ioana Costache: Ntz, pe Tinkerbell (>Peter Pan) au tradus-o "Tilincuta". Pe Rapunzel ar putea s-o traduca drept "Clopotel" din cauza florii

  -> clopotel este cea din Peter Pan, din cate stiu, acum de Rapunzel nu mai stiu
