Maiden Name

The Wizard's Challenge on the Scholastic Site calls a character "Porpentina Filibuster". As the site is canon, should Filibuster be moved to "Porpentina Filibuster" or is "Filibuster" Porpentina Scamander's maiden name? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 17:56, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

I'd err on the side of caution and answer no. It might be just a wizarding name and a surname they decided to jumble up together to produce a possible misleading answer that had a ring to it. There's also a question that features the wrong answers "Hedda the One-eyed Crone", "Boric the Beheaded", "Cletus the Overly Clever", characters that feature nowhere in canon -- "Porpentina Filibuster" might be another such case. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:17, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

In Fantastic Beasts film

J. K. Rowling's recent tweets appear to be confirming the rumours that Porpentina will be appearing in the Fantastic Beasts film, though she admittedly never directly says this. Should we assume this as confirmation, or err on the side of caution and wait for a direct statement? -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 21:20, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

I see no harm in including the possibility in a BTS note, as long as it's properly referenced. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:39, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

Blood status

Just wondering, is there any evidence that Porpentina and her sister Queenie are witches? They could have been muggles or squibs. Muggle spouses and parents are allowed to know about the wizarding world.--Rodolphus (talk) 10:46, June 5, 2015 (UTC)

Though this information was not available when you asked this, I'm just noting for the record that an official press release calls Tina a witch. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 19:50, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
