Physical Description

Merimas Brandybuck was a Hobbit of Buckland.

[edit] History

Merimas was the eldest child, and only son, of Marmadas Brandybuck. He was present at Bilbo's Birthday Party.[1]

[edit] Etymology

The name Merimas is, like most male Brandybuck names, Celtic in sound, but apparently meaningless. The first element, Meri, is similar to Meriadoc, and could, like in that name, have been based on Buckland Westron kali, "jolly, gay".[2]
