Ruby Baggins, née Bolger, was a Hobbit of the Shire.

History

The daughter of Adalgar Bolger, Ruby married Fosco Baggins.[1] They had three children: Dora, Drogo and Dudo.[2]

Etymology

Perhaps it's not unintentional that a Hobbit woman with a jewel-name married into the Baggins family, recently made rich by Bilbo's travels. Both Ruby's marriage and name are consistent with the Bolgers' being of a higher class.[3]

The name of the ruby derives from Latin rubeus meaning "red".[4]
