Marmadoc "Masterful" Brandybuck was a Hobbit of the Shire.
Marmadoc was the son of Madoc Brandybuck and Hanna Goldworthy. He married Adaldrida Bolger and had two children, Gorbadoc and Orgulas.
Marmadoc is an actual Celtic name, a variation of Marmaduke. It derives from Máel Máedóc, which means "disciple of Saint Máedóc". It is possible this is a reference to his father Madoc.
