Winston was the uncle of a female Hogwarts student. He once had a curse placed on him and never could get rid of it.[1]


The name "Winston" is from a surname derived from an English place name, which was in turn derived from the Old English given name Wynnstan meaning "joy stone". A famous bearer was Winston Churchill (1874-1965), the British Prime Minister during World War II. This name was also borne by the fictional Winston Smith, the protagonist in George Orwell's 1949 novel 1984.
