Other versions of the legendarium
In early manuscripts of The Lord of the Rings, the name Bingo was used of the character that would later be named Frodo; first he was Bilbo's son, then "Bingo Bolger-Baggins" his adopted cousin.
It is believed that the original use of the name (for the character that would become Frodo) was inspired by a family of toy koala bears of the Tolkien children, called "the Bingos".
