Default How could they call it "Rohan"...?

...and not have anything to do with Lord of the Rings? Seems misleading, if not a copyright infringement and blatant trap for unwary consumers. Dunno what's up.

1) It's not Rohan, it is R.O.H.A.N. which according to the site stands for: Renaissance of Human and Nature

2) omg, I thought I could buy Gandalf's robes here because it's called Rohan.

3) There are a wide variety of uses for Rohan, Tolkein was clearly not the first to come up with it.

Even the page you linked indicated that Tolkien's use is considered (at least by Wikipedia) to be the primary one. It's one thing to have a clothing company by the same name... but a fantasy location? Dubious.
