Loyalty

Daisy Dodderidge (1467 - 1555) was the witch who built the Leaky Cauldron in a successful attempt to create a gateway between the Muggle and wizarding worlds. She was the original landlady of the pub, and the Leaky Cauldron soon became the primary entrance into Diagon Alley.

Etymology

The name "Daisy" is simply from the English word for the white flower, ultimately derived from Old English dægeseage meaning "day eye". It was first used as a given name in the 19th century, at the same time many other plant and flower names were coined.

Notes and references

  1. "In Ch. 4 of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Horace Slughorn states that family members are often Sorted into the same House. This may indicate that Daisy was Sorted into Gryffindor, as Damara, a possible relative, had a portrait hung in Gryffindor Tower. However, there are exceptions.
