Tosto Boffin

The son of Griffo Boffin

The son of Griffo Boffin and Daisy Baggins, born in the year III 2988 (or 1388 by the Shire-reckoning). Tosto was present with his parents at Bilbo's Farewell Party in III 3001. At that time he would have been just thirteen years old, and was probably among the Hobbit-children who received gifts of astonishing toys.

Tolkien's choice of the name 'Tosto' for this Hobbit is not explained, but he was perhaps influenced the Anglo-Saxon name 'Tostig' (most famously the name of an English earl who died in 1066).
