Doderic Brandybuck was a Hobbit of the Shire.

[edit] History

Doderic was a son of Seredic Brandybuck and Hilda Bracegirdle. He attended Bilbo's Farewell Party.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Since it belongs to a Brandybuck, the name is Celtic-sounding. However it is perhaps a form of Germanic Theuderic meaning "people reign".[2]
