There is a part in the movie where they unmask him if you need a pic

Name

As with Nott, I feel this article should remain entitled "Goyle", since that is the name the character is referred to as in the books. If his first name is unknown, that should be stated, but "Mr. Goyle" is not his name in the books. Mafalda Hopkirk 12:46, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Battle of the Department of Mysteries

I've seen it mentioned more than once that Goyle participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, so I just thought I'd put the proof from OotP that he, in fact, was NOT mentioned as one of the twelve Death Eaters who was there. Lucius names all the others in this passage:

Footsteps and shouts echoed from behind the door they had just sealed; Harry put his ear close to the door to listen and heard Lucius Malfoy roar, 'Leave Nott, leave him, I say — his injuries will be nothing to the Dark Lord compared to losing that prophecy. Jugson, come back here, we need to organise! We'll split into pairs and search, and don't forget, be gentle with Potter until we've got the prophecy, you can kill the others if necessary -Bellatrix, Rodolphus, you take the left; Crabbe, Rabastan, go right -Jugson, Dolohov, the door straight ahead - Macnair and Avery, through here - Rookwood, over there - Mulciber, come with me!'
The passage does seem conclusive proof that Goyle was not present, however, it is mentioned later in the book at Hogwarts that Draco Malfoy, Gregory Goyle, Vincent Crabbe, and Theodore Nott's fathers were all noted as Death Eaters as of the battle. It could be possible that J.K. Rowling made a mistake, either way, so logically speaking we cannot assume that Goyle did participate, even if we are left with a possibility.

Title

I think this page should be moved to "Gregory Goyle's father", since other articles are called this even though referred to as "Mr X" or "Mrs X". -- Bee T. Are50px(Call me!!) 17:20, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

The article has this name because he is referred to as "Goyle" by Voldemort and the DEs. If he wasn't, and the narrative only referred to him as Goyle's father, then you'd have a point. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:13, March 3, 2011 (UTC)
