Etymology

Lima is a Portuguese habitational surname for a person who lives along the Limia River (called Lima in Portuguese), which runs through Spain into Portugal, and was believed by the ancient Romans to be the mythical Lethe.[1][2] As a Spanish surname, Lima is of uncertain origin, but may derive from lima, "file."[1]

Lima is also the capital city of Peru. Its name derives from limaq ("talker" in coastal Quechua), an oracle that was located in the city's area from some point before the 15th century, and was eventually destroyed by the Spanish.[3]

The surname's multiple uses in the Harry Potter films are a tribute to Eduardo Lima, a graphic artist who worked on every film from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban onward.
