Can we please do themes? The themes were really cool, and they provide a challange!

So I'll suggest another one, and start it with C (cause I don't feel like a total renegade).

Hobbit names. No places or things, just people.

C is for Camellia Sackville-Baggins mother of Otho Sackville-Baggins.

1420!

F is for Fredegar Bolger who helped Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin leave Crickhollow undetecded. Nearly killed by a Nazgul, but lived to be later imprisoned in the Lockholes. He was released by Frodo and Co. Was called Fatty up until that point.

(Since we're doing hobbit names E could also have stood for Elanor Gamgee...*ahem*)

G is for Gaffer

He, who, though he didn't know it, saved the whole saved the whole Ring-operation by saying that Mr. Frodo already had set to Crickhollow with his Sam, when a Nazgul rode up the Hill and questioned him.

V is for Valaquenta, a book about the Valar. It was part of Blibo Baggins' Translations from Elvish in the Red Book of Westmarch. (So it's the only hobbit related V word I could think of).

Zaragamba - 'The original (as opposed to translated) name of the Hobbit-family from the Eastfarthing, hereditary Thains of the Shire, who passed on the office to the Took (Tuk) clan and removed to the strip of land between the Baranduin and the Old Forest. It has been translated from the Red Book as Oldbuck.' The Tolkien Companion, p.531

B is for Brego, the second King of the Mark. He built the palace of Meduseld, and then died of grief over the death of his son, Baldor (whom I believe died in the Paths of the Dead [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] ).
