The afternoon, as Sam supposed it must be called, wore on. Looking out from the covert he could see only a dun, shadowless world, fading slowly into a featureless, colourless gloom. It felt stifling but not warm. Frodo slept unquietly, turning and tossing, and sometimes murmuring. Twice Sam thought he heard him speaking Gandalf's name. The time seemed to drag interminably. Suddenly Sam heard a hiss behind him, and there was Gollum on all fours, peering at them with gleaming eyes.
`Wake up, wake up! Wake up, sleepies!' he whispered. `Wake up! No time to lose. We must go, yes, we must go at once. No time to lose!'

LR, Book IV, Chapter 7, Journey to the Cross-roads

Ungollum recalls to much spider for me. It was onomatopoeic name so I imagine sth like Ñullumo, Quollumo... Could Trahald be Felque [PHELEG], Sampion [SAPA]?

+Remy Corbin yes indeed, it sounds spidery. My thought was simply Ñollum -> Nollum/Nollam.

As for Trahald, I was thinking *Ronto from ROT 'dig, excavate, tunnel'. *Sampion just reminds me of champion too much:)
