Should this page be moved to House of Gaunt, much as Black family was moved to House of Black? --Parodist 17:20, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

I don't remember it ever being referred to as the House of Gaunt in canon, so I think it can stay put for now; unless other editors think differently. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 17:28, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Well, the chapter title is the House of Gaunt, isn´t it?--Rodolphus 17:32, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

I agree with you Rodolphus.--Station7 17:33, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Aha, you're right. I forgot about the chapter title. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 17:37, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
The first sentence of the article even refers to them as the House of Gaunt. ----Parodist Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl) 17:42, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
So is there a consensus then, or can anybody give a good reason why it shouldn't be moved? - Nick O'Demus 11:30, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
I personally prefer article titles to be kept consistent. In that regard, I've always found House of Black problematic, because every other article in Category:Families has a title that follows the "[Surname] family" convention. So I'd recommend maintaining this article's current title to avoid introducing further inconsistency. Starstuff (Owl me!) 15:58, November 27, 2009 (UTC)


How do we know Marvolo didn't have any siblings or cousins? I think we should put it as unknown. WHO AGREES?

In the House of Gaunt chapter, Marvolo says that he and his children were Slytherin's last living descendants.--Rodolphus 15:05, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

It was also said that all members of The Gaunt House where Parseltongues, There are no known Parseltongues left, we have to assume that the name is extinct.
The family line could still be alive through females lines, similar to the Black Family. Looking at the Malfoy family crest, I wouldn't be surprised if they were distantly related. And all pureblood families are said to be related, so maybe.

Status of the Family.

I think we should make the status of the family "Unknown",instead of "Extant", because:

1) It is of course extinct in paternal line.

2) It is unknown if there are members alive in the female line, descendants by the daughter of Isolt and James Stewart who married a No-Maj.

3) It is possible -and probable- that Terry Boot is a descendant of one of the adoptive sons of the Stewarts, but they're not blood family, and they wouldonly be in maternal line.
