Underhill was a common Hobbit family name in both the Shire and Bree. Underhill was also the name of a section of Hobbiton that was under Hobbiton Hill, from whence the Underhill family derived their namesake. Underhill was the name used, on the advice of Gandalf, by Frodo Baggins during his travels when he did not wish to be identified; an example of this being his time at The Prancing Pony in Bree. When some Underhills in Bree heard of Frodo's alias, they believed him to be one of their long lost cousins.
