The Tom Riddle Chronicles: The Murder of the Riddle Family
Using his middle name, Marvolo, Tom discovered his mother’s heritage, and in the summer of 1943, he went to Little Hangleton to learn more about his family. While there, he met his uncle Morfin Gaunt, who thought that this stranger looked a lot like his late sister’s husband, Tom Riddle Sr. Morfin told Tom the story of his Muggle father, which infuriated Tom, who had always viewed his mother weak for dying, and had placed all his hopes of a strong magical heritage on his mysterious father. Tom then proceeded to the Riddle home and murdered his father, grandfather and grandmother with the Killing Curse. He covered his crimes by altering Morfin’s memory, causing him to believe that he was the killer. Tom took the family signet ring from Morfin and later used it to create a Horcrux.
Harry Potter Etymology | Rowena Ravenclaw
ROWENA: “Rowena” is Old English for “red hair,” which ties in with Jo’s fascination for those with red hair. It means “rugged” in Gaelic. In Welsh poetry, Rowena is named “mother of the nation,” which could link in to her being a founder of Hogwarts. She also is another character whose name surfaces in the great epic Ivanhoe.
RAVENCLAW: Ravens are known to be smart birds. Makes sense that Ravenclaws are known as wise, quick learners.

“You think I’m a fool?” demanded Harry.
“No, I think you’re like James,” said Lupin, “who would have regarded it as the height of dishonor to mistrust his friends.”
