The Baggins Family were a remarkable and rich Hobbit family from The Shire which included two Ringbearers: Frodo and Bilbo.

Contents

History

The Baggins clan traced their origin to the first recorded Baggins, one Balbo Baggins, who was born in or near Hobbiton in S.R. 1167.

The Baggins family lived all around in the Shire, mostly in or near the town of Hobbiton. They were seen as well to do and respectable, but those with Took blood were more adventurous. A notable example was Bilbo Baggins who set out on the quest for Erebor with Gandalf the Grey and thirteen Dwarves: when he returned he was seen as odd or queer, but also extremely rich.

Bilbo adopted his "nephew" Frodo Baggins, who inherited the smial of Bag End after Bilbo left. Frodo himself was involved in the quest which ended the War of the Ring.

After Bilbo and Frodo left the only recorded Bagginses are the descendants of Bilbo's great-nephew Posco Baggins, although many other descendants of Balbo Baggins are also recorded, under the Sackville-Bagginses, the Chubb-Bagginses, as well as Peregrin Took and Meriadoc Brandybuck (through various interfamiliary marriages).

Etymology

The name Baggins is a translation in English of the actual Westron name Labingi, which was believed to be related to the Westron word laban, "bag". The name is associated with Bag End.[1]

The name Baggins is translated in most translations of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, often keeping the "bag" or "sack" meaning:

  • In the German translation the family name is Beutlin
  • In the Dutch translation it is Balings
  • In the French translation it is Sacquet in most books, but Bessac in the new Hobbit translation
  • In the Norwegian translation it is Lommelun
  • In the Finnish translation it is Reppuli
  • In the Spanish translation it is Bolsón
  • In the Swedish translation it is Bagger
  • In the Portuguese translation it is Bolseiro
  • In the Frisian translation it is Balsma
