Dora Baggins was the aunt of Frodo Baggins.

History

Her parents were Fosco Baggins and Ruby Bolger. She had two younger brothers, Dudo Baggins and Drogo Baggins, the father of Frodo.[1]

Dora enjoyed writing letters filled with advice to her relations, and in memory of this correspondence Bilbo Baggins gave her a waste-paper basket when he left the Shire in S.R. 1401.[2] She attended his Farewell Party at the age of 99. Dora Baggins died five years later in 1406.[1]

Etymology

The name Dora was meaningless in contemporary Hobbitish Westron. It represented an original name Doro or Dore.[3]
