Filibert Bolger was a Hobbit of the Bolger clan, whose marriage to Poppy Chubb-Baggins meant that she was the last of the Chubb-Bagginses to bear that family name. Filibert belonged to the same family as the better known Fredegar 'Fatty' Bolger, but while these two were clearly related. They were perhaps distant cousins, both descended through several generations from one Adalgar Bolger[1].


The name means "Fullbright" from fili and berht[2]
