In J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, Hobbits are a fictional race related to Men. They first appear in The Hobbit and play an important role in The Lord of the Rings.
This is a list of hobbits that are mentioned by name in Tolkien's works. They are ordered alphabetically by first name. In cases where a hobbit’s family name was changed, usually through marriage, their original family name is given in parentheses. Nicknames are given in quotation marks.
Note that the years are given in years of the Third Age (unless otherwise noted), and not according to Shire Reckoning. Bilbo's farewell party, which is frequently referred to, occurred in T.A. 3001.
