'Proudfeet!' shouted an elderly hobbit from the back of the pavilion. His name, of course, was Proudfoot, and well merited; his feet were large, exceptionally furry, and both were on the table.

Odo Proudfoot (S.R. 1304 - S.R. 1405[1]) was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Odo was the son of Bodo and Bilbo Baggins' aunt, Linda[1] and gave rise to a line of Proudfoots (or, as Odo himself preferred, "Proudfeet").[2]

Odo was among the guests at the famous Bilbo's Farewell Party during which he rested his prominently big feet on the table, until Bilbo Baggins suddenly and inexplicably disappeared, and in his surprise he took his feet of the table.[2] At that time, he was an elderly hobbit indeed, being ninety-seven years old. He only lived for a few more years after the Party,[1] but from him had come at least two generations of descendants, including his mischievous grandson Sancho, who attempted to excavate for treasure in Bag End.[2]


The name Odo was meaningless in contemporary Hobbitish Westron. It represented an original name Oda.[3]
