The name 'Odovacar' is Gothic: in fact, historically, Odovacar was the barbarian who finally overthrew the western Roman Empire. The [[Hobbits]] lived millennia before the Goths existed, of course, so Odovacar cannot have been a real Hobbit name. Instead, it merely represents the original, unknown, name for this member of the [[Bolger Family]], whose real name would presumably have come from some appropriately famous barbarian of his own history.
