Name

I'm wondering if it'd be of interest to add that "Gregorovitch" is, in fact, neither a first or surname, but a patronymic, Eastern Slavic style. In Russia, Ukraine and Bulgaria, they have three names, one of which is the patronymic, and Gregorovitch is basically Gregor+ович (ovich), meaning "son of Gregor". It's odd that he's using the patronymic, as it is usually reserved for close friends only, not something you'd use in the career or amongst people in general (all three names would appear on legal documents and maybe his store). Anyway, food for thought. Kaldelar (talk) 18:27, December 14, 2012 (UTC)

Sure, you can feel free to add a bit about that in an "Etymology" section placed just above the "Behind the scenes" section. I'd link to our article layout guide to show where it should go, but it doesn't seem to be up to date with current trends. You can see what's typical for such a section in pretty much any major article, though, such as the one for Harry Potter. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 20:42, December 14, 2012 (UTC)
Excellent, I'll get right on it. Kaldelar (talk) 21:44, December 15, 2012 (UTC)
About his first name: How is www.harrypotterwallart.com affilated with Rowling? Since the first name is considered canon, I mean? User:Simen Johannes Fagerli
By our canon policy, any officially licensed source is considered canon, not just those directly affiliated with Rowling. harrypotterwallart.com is a official retailer of Harry Potter merchandise and licensed to sell their products by Warner Bros. However, if, for instance, Pottermore were to provide a different first name for Gregorovitch, it would override the name from such a distantly affiliated source. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 05:37, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I see! Thank's! :-D
