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 four children; two sons, Gorbadoc and Orgulas, and two daughters.
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.
