    Regarding Sackville-Bagginses.

    S.B.s

    Whenever one of the characters says "S.B.s" I always imagine that they are silently adding an 'o' (as in, S.o.B.s).

    Do we know if that abbreviation was part of the vulgar vernacular back in Tolkien's day, or is that a purely modern interpretation?
