|Birth||S.R. 1431 |
|Parentage||Samwise Gamgee and Rose Cotton|
Goldilocks Gardner (born S.R. 1431) was the third daughter of Samwise Gamgee and Rose Cotton, so named because her fair hair was rare among the Shire-hobbits. She married Thain Faramir I, son of Peregrin Took.
Although the name refers to her hair, it is also in accordance to the Hobbit custom of giving flower-names to women. Goldilocks sometimes refers to buttercup or daisy flowers.[source?]
