Hildigard Took was a Hobbit of the Shire.

History[edit]

Hildigard was the second child of the Old Took and Adamanta Chubb. Hildigard died at a young age.[1]

Etymology[edit]

"Hildigard" come from the Germanic roots hild meaning "battle" and gard meaning "protection".[2]

The hobbit's gender is not mentioned (Robert Foster, The Complete Guide to Middle-earth for example treats Hildigard as a male hobbit), however Hildegard is a Germanic female name.
