Rose Cotton has just left Hobbiton.

Funny, I didn't know there was an art to picking hobbit names. Since most of them seem to be made up. Though I do know somthing about how one of our good friends got his name. This is from one of Tolkien's biogrophys:

Cotton balls, for example, were known as gamgee, which itself was short for gamgee-tissue. Why gamgee? A local man named Samson Gamgee had invented them.
Now there may be no conection at all but I do find that very suspitous. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
