Most versions of the song I know start off with the chorus, which would make Rudolph the first one mentioned

The song was written by Johnny Marks, brother-in-law of Robert L. May who wrote the original story for Montgomery Ward's annual Christmas book.There's a short introduction to the song which gives the same eight reindeer names as in the poem, "A Visit From Saint Nicholas." A few other lines were taken from the same poem in the original book. That poem was public domain by then.

Hound for hund?
+1
Level 67
Dec 28, 2018
You dont use hound in english when you mean dog do you. (Admittedly as a reflex I typed that too, since it is hond in dutch, but I knew it wasnt correct. Hounds are dogs, but dogs arent allways hounds. In english the meaning of the word (hund/hond) shifted to hunting dogs specifically, and the spelling changed to hound in middle english)

"Hund" should be spelled with a capital H since it's a German noun.
