Greengrass is the surname of a pure-blood[1][2] wizarding family, and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight.[3] They are related through marriage to the Malfoy family, and, more distantly, to the Black and the Lestrange families.

The Greengrasses are known to have espoused the philosophy of Pure-blood supremacy,[2] even though, following the horrors of the Second Wizarding War, Astoria Greengrass abandoned those beliefs in favour of a more tolerant world view and even refused to raise her son to believe that "Muggles [are] scum" even though that created tension with her parents-in-law, Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy.[2]

Family membersEdit

EtymologyEdit

  • 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.
