    Beyond Bilbo Baggins...

    As a huge Middle Earth fan, I have long considered using Hobbit names Peregrin (nn Pippin) or Meriadoc (nn Merry) for a future son.

    I decided to do some research into other Hobbit names (just for fun!). What do you think? Any of these you would use? (Tolkien fan, or not)
    The female names are obviously much more wearable...

    What about Arwen? Eowyn? Aragorn, Elrond, Galadriel? I must point out that you missed some of the best.

    Well, she did say she was going to list Hobbit names. Arwen, Elrond and Galadriel are Elves; and Eowyn and Aragorn are Human.

    Now, to the names!


    GIRLS
    Adaldrida - A bit of a tongue-twister for me.
    Adamanta - Nice
    Amaranth - Really like this one, though I prefer it with an "a" at the end
    Amethyst - Pretty and usable
    Asphodel - Sounds weird to me, but I can't put my finger on why
    Belladonna - Love love love. Also, Bilbo's mother, who, from what I could gather, was an awesome lady
    Camellia - Really pretty name and flower
    Celandine - I don't know about this one
    Diamond - Doesn't sound very name-like to me
    Donnamira - Not really a fan of this one
    Dora - The Explorer (though I really think it's pretty)
    Eglantine - I like this one, but I don't think it's really usable
    Esmeralda - I like this one, but I find it too attached to the gypsy and Mexican soap-operas
    Estella - Like it. And you could link it to Aragorn's elf name (Estel - meaning hope if I'm not mistaken)
    Gerda - I find this one a bit awkward
    Gilly - Makes me think of that disgusting plant Harry had to eat to get through the Second Task
    Goldilocks - Should remain in the fairy-tales
    Hilda - Okay
    Hildigard - Prefer Hilda
    Ivy - Usable, pretty popular
    Lalia - I like it okay
    Lavender - Like it, very nice
    Lobelia - has a nice sound, though the Sackville-Bagginses don't deserve a child named after them
    Marigold - Love it
    Mimosa - Every cow (the animal) I've ever known has been called either Mimosa or Estrella, so I'd have to say no
    Mirabella - Very pretty
    Myrtle - Moaning Myrtle
    Nora - Nice, very common
    Pansy - Parkinson (Oh God, I'm a Harry Potter freak haha)
    Peony - Not sure how to pronounce this one
    Primrose - I like it, though I think everyone will think Hunger Games
    Primula - Frodo's mother! Like it a lot
    Rosamunda - Prefer Rosamund

    BOYS
    Adalbert - I know someone named Adalberto, so I'd say its usable
    Andwise - Prefer Samwise
    Anson - Okay, prefer Anton
    Doderic - Don't really like it
    Everard - Usable, but I don't really like how it sounds
    Ferdinand - Like it, reminds me of the bull
    Flambard - Makes me think of that awesome dessert with the vanilla icecream, banana and the fire (especially the fire)
    Fortinbras - Don't really think it's usable
    Fredegar - Same as above
    Halfred - Alfred?
    Hildibrand - No
    Hugo - Like it, common enough
    Isembard - These Tooks had some weird names
    Isembold - Same as above
    Marmadoc - Okay, Brandybucks had weird names also
    Meriadoc - I like Merry
    Otho - Usable, but I think it would be confused with Otto
    Otto - Perfectly usable
    Paladin - Gamers will surely recognise this one
    Peregrin - Love love love, though I prefer it with an "e" at the end
    Rorimac - Could use nn Rory
    Rudigar - Rude?
    Rufus - Okay, not really a fan but it's usable enough
    Samwise - Really like, a nice alternative to nn Sam
    Sancho - Panza? Don't know if people will remember him from Don Quixote, but it's all that comes to my mind
    Saradoc - Sounds a bit feminine to me. Must be the Sara beggining
    Tolman - Usable
    Wilimar - A nice way to get to Will if you don't want to use William (or Willard)


    I think maybe the girl names are more usable because they are basically flowers and gems. Had a lot of fun in this one
