Forum:Hobbit classification

Tolkien Gateway > Council > Hobbit classification

I'm having trouble deciding what categories to put Hobbit families into and which articles should be about them. I think we need one article for the family, which would include a family tree and a history of the family etc. Should this be called "Boffin", "Boffins", "Boffin family", or "Boffin Family". On top of that I still haven't fully decided on how to categorize them, Category:Boffins seems the most likely, any ideas? --Hyarion 13:56, 10 March 2006 (EST)

For the family articles, I'd say either "X Family" (since most article titles are capitalized), or the family's name only (singular). For the Category, (also) singular form, as that is the family name itself. I mean, Mr and Mrs Johnson's family name is 'Johnson', not '(the) Johnsons'. --Earendilyon 16:19, 11 March 2006 (EST)
I've gone through The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and any family reference uses a lowercase f for family. I think for simplicity sake I'm going to focus on Baggins family for articles and Category:Baggins family for the category. If anyone has any objections, do say so. --Hyarion 23:12, 27 March 2006 (EST)
