Celandine Brandybuck was the third and youngest child of Seredic Brandybuck and Hilda Bracegirdle.


Celandine was descended from the line of the Masters of the Hall of Buckland: specifically, from Gorbadoc Brandybuck. Along with her parents and her brothers Doderic and Ilberic, she was present at Bilbo's Farewell Party.[1]


Celandine is the name of three different flowers (two poppies and one buttercup). The name derives from the Greek, via Latin, χελιδώνι (chelidoni) meaning "swallow".
