Fudge was the surname of a wizarding family. It is unknown if they were pure-blood, or had both Muggle and magical heritage. However, given that Cornelius Fudge showed favouritism for those with purely magical heritage (such as the Malfoys), it is possible they were pure-blood.
Known family members
- Cornelius Oswald Fudge — former Minister for Magic
- Mrs. Fudge — the wife of Cornelius
- Rufus Fudge — Improper Use of Magic Office employee sacked for disappearing a tube train
Fudge is an English surname chiefly found in the county of Somerset. It is derived from a pet form of the English surname surname Fulcher. The surname Fulcher derives from the Germanic male given name Fulcher/Fulchar, which means either "the people's army," from the Old German elements folk, "people", and heri/hari, "army," or "lord of the people," from folk and herr, "lord."
