Luckwearer

Luckwearer was one of several names and titles given to himself by Bilbo Baggins during his encounter with the dragon Smaug. Bilbo made these titles intentionally obscure and mysterious: 'Luckwearer' is a reference to the Magic Ring Bilbo wore, and his extraordinary good luck - as he thought - in finding it within the Goblins' dark tunnels.[1]
