"No one lived after he decided ter kill 'em, no one except you, an' he'd killed some of the best witches and wizards of the age - the McKinnons, the Bones, the Prewetts - you were only a baby an' you lived."
Rubeus Hagrid to Harry Potter[src]

Bones is the surname of a wizarding family with both magical and Muggle heritage[1]. They were a prominent family, with strong connections to the Ministry of Magic, which made them a target of Lord Voldemort during the First Wizarding War. The family was almost entirely slaughtered by Death Eaters[2], and Amelia Bones and her parents were murdered by Voldemort himself.[3].

Etymology

Bones is an English surname originally from either the Old French bon, meaning "good", or the Old English ban, meaning "thin, bony"[7]. A bone is a rigid connective organ that makes up the skeleton of vertebrates. Skull and Bones is the name of a secret society based at Yale University; many members of the Bones family were associated with the secret society the Order of the Phoenix.
