Anthony Rickett was a Hufflepuff student in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the 1990s. He played as a Beater on the Hufflepuff Quidditch team when it was captained by Cedric Diggory.
The name "Anthony" is the English form of the Roman family name Antonius, which is of unknown Etruscan origin. The most notable member of the Roman family was the general Marcus Antonius (called Mark Antony in English), who for a period in the 1st century BC ruled the Roman Empire jointly with Augustus. When their relationship turned sour, he and his mistress Cleopatra were attacked and forced to commit suicide, as related in Shakespeare's tragedy Antony and Cleopatra (1606).
