Isengar Took was a Hobbit of the Shire.

History

Isengar was the youngest child of the Old Took. He was one of several youngsters inspired by Gandalf[1] to travel outside of the Shire; it is told that he saw the sea in his youth.[2] When Bilbo Baggins was young he used to pester Gandalf for information about Hobbits who had "gone off", such as his uncle Isengar.[3]

Etymology

The name contains isen "iron" and gar "spear".[4]
