XXII. Columbine 

You would give a hobbit-child a Fairy name? No one names their children after flowers here.

She's half Fairy too, Mother, he explained patiently.

But she has to live amongst Mortal children, son. Why not give her a sensible name? You simply cannot call her 'Columbine', it's perfectly ridiculous.

Perhaps it will set a precedent, Petal said smiling. And it seemed the babe smiled in her arms as well.

And so she was called Columbine. And Petal's sister-in-law, not to be outdone, named her newborn daughter Pansy.

At least the poor little creature has no wings, his mother thought.
