In J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings", the surname of Peregrin "Pippin" Took, a cousin of Meriadoc Brandybuck and second cousin of Frodo Baggins. Bandobras Took, also known as the Old Took, is somewhat a famous name in Hobbit-lore, as he was not only adventurous but a friend of Gandalf's and tall enough to ride a horse. The Tooks live in Tuckborough in the Shire and are known among the Hobbits to be wealthy and adventurous.
