Bag End

In J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional world of Middle-earth, Bag End was Bilbo Baggins's subterranean home in Hobbiton, at the end of Bagshot Row.

The name comes from the farmhouse in the tiny Worcestershire village of Dormston, in which Tolkien's aunt lived.

It can also be seen as a pun on "cul-de-sac" (literally, "bottom of the bag").
