< 3 > A year after, she brought a beautiful child into the world, and she never gave a thought to the manikin. But suddenly he came into her room, and said, "Now give me what you promised." The queen was horror-struck, and offered the manikin all the riches of the kingdom if he would leave her the child. But the manikin said, "No, something alive is dearer to me than all the treasures in the world." Then the queen began to lament and cry, so that the manikin pitied her. "I will give you three days, time," said he, "if by that time you find out my name, then shall you keep your child." So the queen thought the whole night of all the names that she had ever heard, and she sent a messenger over the country to inquire, far and wide, for any other names that there might be. When the manikin came the next day, she began with Caspar, Melchior, Balthazar, and said all the names she knew, one after another, but to every one the little man said, "That is not my name." 

一年过后,她生了一个漂亮的孩子,但从没想到那个侏儒。突然,他来到她的房间,说:”现在给我你当初保证的东西。”王后惊恐万分,并说如果他能放过她的孩子,她愿意把王宫全部的财富都给他。但是侏儒说:”不,活着的东西比世界上所有的财富更可爱。” 然后王后开始悲伤地哭起来,为了让侏儒可怜她。侏儒说:“我会给你三天的时间,如果到时你能知道我的名字,那么你就可以留住你的孩子。”王后想了一夜,把她听过的所有名字都找出来,同时又派了一个使者到全国询问其他有可能的名字。第一天侏儒来的时候,她说出Caspar, Melchior, Balthazar和全部她知道的名字,一个一个地说出来,但这个小人听到每个名字都说:“那不是我的名字。”


On the second day she had inquiries made in the neighborhood as to the names of the people there, and she repeated to the manikin the most uncommon and curious. Perhaps your name is Shortribs, or Sheepshanks, or Laceleg, but he always answered, "That is not my name." 

第二天她询问了附近的人的姓名,并在侏儒面前重复了那些最不普通和最古怪的名字。或许你的名字是Shortribs或者Sheepshanks又或者是Laceleg,但他还是回答:“那不是我的名字。”
