in a name

I really enjoyed the new Harry Potter movie, which I saw tonight. It was the first one that actually made me want to go read the books, which is good since the last book is out and I can enjoy instant gratification, rather than having to wait.

I have just one question, though. When you name your daughter Bellatrix LeStrange, which roughly translates into “spooky weapon”, aren’t her career options a little limited? It’s like being shocked that Victor Von Doom grew up to be evil, or that Jo Nah got his powers from being swallowed by a giant space whale.

Just name your kid Toady von Henchman or Smart Doctor and be done with it.

I just finished book 7. I'm very disappointed. Not with how it ended, but with the entire book.
