Hildigard Took was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Hildigard was the daughter of Adamanta (Chubb) Took and Gerontious "The Old" Took. She died young.[1]


Though Hildigard's gender is not specified by in Appendix C, "Hildigard" (and the more popular spelling "Hildegard") is a Germanic female name. It is derived from the elements hild (battle) and gard (enclosure).[2][3]
