Orangeblossom Burrows of Tuckborough

or

Orangeblossom Broadbelt of Buckland


Depends. Are hobbits matrilocal or patrilocal; matrilineal of patrilineal?

You might be Burrows of Buckland or Broadbelt of Tuckborough.

My daughters are Ruby and Berylla. Can someone enlighten me on 'Berylla'?

Ruby and Berylla go well together. A number of precious stones are beryl, which is called "the mother of gemstones". Emerald is a green beryl, aquamarine an aquamarine beryl, etc. A ruby is not a red beryl- a red beryl goes by the exotic name of red beryl.

Drogo Moss of Lake-by-Downs...lush vegetation near water suits me just fine! Joining my fellow Drogos Faldage and Flatlander. Then, again, maybe Drogo is the Hobbit name for "Bob".

Thanks, Sparteye...loads of fun! The URL's on its way to lots of friends and children!
But I couldn't get back in for my boardname...so I'll have to check in with an edit on that later.
Edit...My boardname becomes Mungo Hamwich of Buckleberry Fern! don't say a word, Jackie!

Hmm, xara...married into...you sure in Middle Earth this doesn't make us (gulp)...husband and wife?
And, now, introducing for the first time in public...Mr. and Mrs. Hamwich of Buckleberry Fern! (Mungo and Bramblerose, respectively). What a pair, huh?!

I didn't really take to Grigory Grubb of Little Delving (my real name) and I'm not sure about Sancho Knotwise of Michel Delving (Bingley Austen) either.
