I have always been under the impression that "Bilbo" was taken from the noun, "a rapier or sword", which comes from the word "Bilbao", in Spain.

Actually, the only source stating the connection to a sword is Ruth Noel's Languages of Middle-Earth, a book that is outdated and unauthorative. In Tolkiens universe, Bilbo is from Bilba, which is of unknown meaning, like the main entry says.

This name sounds too much like Dildo.

No matter how much of a fan you are of Lord of The Rings, it really would be unwise to name your child this - imagaine the tormet and bullying that would take place!

Like people have said before; this is not a baby name site but a name site. Some names on this site are clearly not meant to be given to kids but are just on the site to explain the meaning.
I use Bilbo like dumbass or silly because it sounds so funny and I love the character Bilbo in LotR so it's not meant to be offensive.

If I heard this on a kid, I'd probably assume the parents were hardcore Tolkien fans. I think it sounds kinda silly on a real person.
