Marigold Cotton (née Gamgee) was the youngest child of Hamfast Gamgee.
"Marigold" (from Mary + gold) refers to the Tagetes annual plants of the daisy family.
Tolkien picked the name since it contains "gold" and referring to a golden flower, suggesting the Fallohide strain in Sam's family — which, increased by the favour of Galadriel, became notable in his children.
Portrayal in adaptations
2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:
- Marigold is not a regular NPC present in the game, but rather appears during a single quest available only when the game's annual Yule-festival is active. She appears in front of Bag-End to sign a petition to remove Lobelia Sackville-Baggins from her position as the Yule-planner.
