Bombur had never been granted a byname, although he had been part of many armies which had achieved great deeds. But somehow the cook was always overlooked by the bards and tale spinners, no one moment standing out enough to be immortalized in song.
However, the dwarf never minded this for he knew that he had played his role in changing history and he was not one who needed his name remembered for eternity. Bombur already had all the glory he ever wanted in his wife and family, all the immortality of any beloved hero in his children's eyes. So when the dwarf returned home after his long adventure and heard his daughters cry out “Daddy,” this was more than enough.
