Wilfred Rowland Childe (1890 - 1952) was a British poet and critic. He was also a friend of J.R.R. Tolkien and godfather to his son Christopher. Like Tolkien, he was a Roman Catholic (having converted in 1916).

Childe was educated at Harrow School and Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1922, he joined the English School at the University of Leeds, and became a colleague of Tolkien.

While at Oxford, Childe edited Oxford Poetry in 1916 and 1917, a publication to which also Tolkien contributed. And together with poetry by Tolkien, Childe's work was published in A Northern Venture and Leeds University Verse 1914-24.
