Mirabella Brandybuck, née Took, was a Hobbit of the Shire.

[edit] History

Mirabella was one of the Old Took's many children.[1] She married Gorbadoc Brandybuck, and had seven children: Rorimac, Amaranth, Saradas, Dodinas, Asphodel, Dinodas and Primula.[2]

[edit] Etymology

The name is French and refers to the palm tree fruit.[3]

The name participates in a circular wordplay with the names of her sisters, Donnamira and Belladonna, all Italian names.
