Anar was one of the four Dwarves that accompanied Bilbo Baggins on his journeys after his birthday party.[1]

[edit] Other versions

In the early writings of the chapter "A Long-expected Party", Anar was given some dialogue and a bit more development. However, Tolkien later changed his mind, and did not disclose his name in the book nor gave him any dialogue.

[edit] Etymology

Anar, or Anarr, is a dwarf from the Dvergatal. His name most likely means "the Other" or "Starer".[2]
