I believe I once read that the reason dwarves became associated with what we now call dwarfism has to do with a Norse tradition of taking children born with the condition to natural caves to be taken by dwarves. The implication was that the dwarves would take the child and assimilate it within dwarves culture. so, these children were "children of the dwarves" or "dwarf children". I think it was just eventually assumed that every little person would become a cultural dwarf, so the "child of" part eventually fell away. From that point forward, the middle man was cut out, and the children were simply dwarves. Also, these children were being murdered. It gets very cold in Norway, and there were many wolves. Have a great day!
