Can someone clarify if the St. stands for Street or Saint? Mafalda Hopkirk 18:54, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

It's Saint. There is a real town in Devon, England called Ottery St. Mary, near Exeter where JK went to college. It is supposedly the basis of the name, and Ottery St. Catchpole is supposedly in Devon as well. Interestingly, another Devon town in namechecked in the HP universe, the town of Dawlish. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 19:01, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
That's good, that's what I had been saying in my head all this time =) Mafalda Hopkirk 19:14, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
