GenderMale

Blanco was one of the two Bree-hobbits who founded the Shire in Third Age 1601. The other was his brother, Marcho.

Etymology

Old English blanca means "horse".

Inspiration

The two brothers are perhaps based on Hengest and Horsa, who brought the Saxons to Britany, whose names are relevant to horses.[1].
