Marigold Cotton (née Gamgee) was the youngest child of Hamfast Gamgee.

History

Like all Gamgees, Marigold was close to the Cotton Family. She married Young Tom Cotton, the eldest son of Farmer Cotton. Marigold's brother, Sam, married Tom's sister Rose.[1]

Etymology

"Marigold" (from Mary + gold) refers to the Tagetes annual plants of the daisy family.

Tolkien picked the name since it contains "gold" and referring to a golden flower, suggesting the Fallohide strain in Sam's family — which, increased by the favour of Galadriel, became notable in his children.[2]
