It's apple season here in New York and time to grab your pippins to make your apple pie before a crazy goat can get them.

Pippin Took was the nickname of a hobbit named "Peregrin Took."  He was commonly called Pippin.  The name Pippin also has many variations in spelling.

Wikipedia gives several "Pippin" references.  Many of them are found here ---   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pippin

and there is also a disambiguation page for Pippin at   ---   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pippin

One of the things I noticed on the disambiguation page for "Pippin" was that Apple Pippin is a totally different meaning than pippin apples.
