Doc Crusty hates it when you try to talk to her while she's havin' coffee. Also, if your radio goes on the fritz, probably best to not bring it up to your buddies at the bar; they ain't helpful.

Scholarly Second: “Illness and Disability” by J.K. Rowling
Now for this week’s blog post:
Where Do Those Names Come From?!
Rowling seems to have a fun time coming up with names for everything in her book. “She uses foreign words, puns, and anagrams; makes references to history and myth; and often takes names from maps.” For words such as Quidditch, she makes them up. It was brought up that a fan pointed out letters from each ball used in the game make up the word Quidditch: Quaffle, Bludger, Bludger, and snitch. Something else that I think is special is that she also invents the histories for the words she invents. A companion book one can find is “Quidditch Through the Ages” where we can learn more about Quidditch.
Below are some examples of words with a little more meaning to them/where they came from:
O.W.L.s: Ordinary Wizarding Levels. To pass you would prove to be wise.
N.E.W.T.s: Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests.
Bathilda Bagshot: Bagshot is the author of A History of Magic, but is also a town near London
Beauxbatons: French for “beautiful wands”
Gilderoy Lockhart: His first name refers to his being gilded to make him seem more intelligent and attractive. His last name connects with author J.G. Lockhart and fits his role as a writer of wizard lore.
The Grey Lady: Lady Jane Grey was the queen of England for 9 days in 1553 before being killed.
Religion and Mythology
Remus Lupin: Lupus is Latin for ‘wolf.’ Additionally, the legendary founders of Rome were named Romulus and Remus.
Hedwig: under her patronage, nuns chose as their work the education of orphaned children, like Harry.
And a couple fun words: Diagon Alley runs “diagonally.” Knockturn Alley is not a place you want to visit “nocturnally.”
