About its Naming
As many of you should know, the name Bilbo is the name of “Bilbo Baggins” the famous hobbit in Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings novels, and we select this because of our interest to him and Tolkien’s stories :D (But I didn’t know about copyright contexts and if we can do this or not)
And release codenames are selected from there…
