Physical Description

Lily Baggins was a Hobbit of the Shire.

[edit] History

Lily was a daughter of Balbo Baggins and Berylla Boffin. She married Togo Goodbody and had many descendants.[1]

During the last years of her life, the Shire suffered from the Fell Winter[2], and around that time she lost her elder brother Ponto. Lily died the next year, as did her other brother, Largo.[1]

[edit] Etymology

A lily is a plant of the lilium genus, or to visually similar plants. It derives from Greek λείριον through Latin, ultimately of ancient Egyptian origin.[3]
