Hobday was the surname of a British wizarding family. It is unknown if they were pure-blood, or had both Muggle and magical heritage.

Known family members


Hobday is an English surname chiefly found in the West Midlands.[1] It derives from Hob, a medieval short form of the male given name Robert, combined with the Middle English word day, meaning "servant."[1][2]" The full meaning of the surname could thus be interpreted as either "Hob the servant" or "servant of Hob."[1]
