- "“I was just telling young Marcus here that I had the pleasure of teaching his Uncle Damocles,” Slughorn told Harry and Neville, now passing around a basket of rolls. “Outstanding wizard, outstanding, and his Order of Merlin most well-deserved. Do you see much of your uncle, Marcus?”"

No offence to anyone, but would it be considered too much of a stretch to assume, based on the fact that (at least here in Canada) males keep their surnames and that his nephew's surname is Belby, that he himself is of the surname Belby? If it is not too much of "speculation", then I shall rename it upon being given permission to do so. Hunniebunn (talk) 23:18, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
- Sorry, but I just don't think we have enough information to assume any such thing. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:27, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
- Right. Damocles could be Marcus' (Marcus's?) uncle by marriage, in which case he would have an entirely different surname. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:55, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
