Contents

History

Bungo was the eldest child of Mungo Baggins and Laura Grubb. He Belladonna Took, daughter of the Old Took, in S.R. 1280. Bungo and Belladonna had only one child together, the infamous Bilbo Baggins.[1]

Apart from fathering Bilbo, Bungo's other achievement is that he built and excavated the rather luxurious Bag End in the Hill in Hobbiton.[2]

Etymology

The name Bungo was meaningless in contemporary Hobbitish Westron. It represented an original name Bunga.[3]
