To my knowledge, Michaeli is a russian male given name. Should we add gender male.?--Rodolphus 09:26, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

I read the second name on the receipt as "Machali." There is a town in Chile called Machalí. It's also possible that whatever graphic artist made the receipt transposed the "l" and "ch" in the male Hebrew given name Malachi. Starstuff (Owl me!) 09:39, June 29, 2010 (UTC)


This individual must have been born in or before 1982, since he was able to go to Hogsmeade, and only 3rd year students and on can go there. Phoenix Arcturus Black 23:07, December 20, 2011 (UTC)

Irrelevant. Dennis Creevey was also at this meeting, and he was only in his second year. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 23:12, December 20, 2011 (UTC)

Homage to someone

There are multiple references in the Harry Potter films to people with a name similar to this one: Luca Michali Caruso, Luxo Karuzos, and even Luca Books. If you go to the MinaLima Design website (the company that designed much of the props in the movies), you can also glimpse a poster prop made for Sweeney Todd, referring to "The Greatest Genuine Conjurer, Luca Michali Caruso", apparently an illusionist. There is yet another mention of someone called "Caruso" in the props designed for A Good Woman, as shown in their website. All these occurrences of the very same name (or slightly different variations of it) seem to suggest it is a reference to someone who worked with them (see, for instance, Edwardus Lima, Eduardus Limette Black, Mina Lima, Eduaphora Mergus, Alexandra Walker, Alexia Walkin Black, Wakefield, L. Wakefield, M. Carneiro, M. Carneirus, and I could just go on and on), but who? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 02:56, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

I'm thinking a family member - perhaps Miraphora Lima's husband or father. I looked up Sweeney Todd on IMDb and found that she was credited on that film as Miraphora Caruso and it looks like she also used this name on some of the Harry Potter films. I alo found a posting by a Luca Caruso on a page on a non-U.S. (Icelandic?) Facebook site - here. ProfessorTofty 03:32, December 26, 2011 (UTC)
Luca Caruso is Miraphora Mina's son. This is mentioned on page 109 of the book Talks with Emanuel Hurwitz: 82 Years with the Violin by Riki Gerardy, which I found by searching Google Books (see Talk:Emanuel Hurwitz for information on Miraphora Mina's connection to him).

Middle Name

Judging by his signature, his middle name is Machala, rather than Michala. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 00:58, June 24, 2015 (UTC)
