Slytherin

Greengrass is the surname of a pure-blood[1] wizarding family, and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight. They are related to the Malfoy family, and more distantly to the Black and the Lestrange families. The socio-economic status of the Greengrass family is unknown. However, it is most likely they are a very old and wealthy family, belonging to wizarding Britain's privileged upper class, along with being one of the Sacred Twenty-Eights, since Draco Malfoy married Astoria Greengrass, and it would be most out-of-character for any member of the Malfoy family to make ties with and/or marry someone they deemed to be of lesser heritage (though Draco did mellow out after the Second Wizarding War, having seen the error of his Death Eater lifestyle).

Etymology

  • The surname Greengrass seems to simply come from the words green and grass, emphasising Slytherin's house colours. This would imply the Greengrass family have been traditionally sorted into Slytherin.

Notes and references

  1. Astoria Greengrass's son was described as pure-blood by Ron Weasley in the Epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, indicating that Astoria would have been pure-blood herself.
