Olo Chubb-Baggins of Pincup's family tree

I wasn't satisfied that the On Notice board I created was sufficient fun in response to the challenge issued on CowHampshire.

So I went to the Hobbit Name generator, and entered in my own name, and the names of all my ancestors up to 4 generations, and then of course I created a new database on iFamily and typed in those names.


I fear I may need to apologize to my Mom most for the results. If anyone is interested in the gedcom, just ask. I entered nothing except names, though I could have created some descriptions a the detailed character generator.

I do notice in the final generation that there is evidence of possible pedigree collapse if I carry the diagram much further. And why did Drogo Foxburr of Fairdowns change his name to Hardbottle upon coming to America? You'd have to ask him.

I don't know much about Prisca Bramble of Willowbottom. When I was young I dreamt that Prisca was somehow related to Minto Bleecker-Baggins of Fair Downs.

Minto's a famous escape artist many youngsters read stories about, and I had read enough to know that his real name was Mungo Bramble of Willowbottom. I figured they had the same last names, they had to be related. Somehow.

And what I am most impressed about in all that is that the names Minto and Mungo are almost as close as the human names are.

Correction: Goldie Foxburr of Loamsdowne should be changed to Goldie Toadfoot.
