Goldilocks Gardner (born S.R. 1431) was a Hobbit of the Shire.
History[edit | edit source]
Goldilocks was the third daughter of Samwise Gamgee and Rose Cotton, so named because her fair hair was rare among the Shire-hobbits, but not among Sam's children. In S.R. 1463 she married Thain Faramir I, son of Peregrin Took.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Although the name refers to her hair, it is also in accordance to the Hobbit custom of giving flower-names to women. Goldilocks sometimes refers to buttercup or daisy flowers. The Sindarin translation of her name appearing in the King's Letter was Glorfinniel.
