"But you're Muggles! We must have a drink! What's that you've got there? Oh, you're changing Muggle money. Molly, look!"
Arthur Weasley upon meeting the Grangers[src]

Granger is the surname of a Muggle family that must have some distant magical blood. Member Hermione is a Muggle-born witch and her children, Rose and Hugo Granger-Weasley are half-bloods.

Family history

Hermione's parents are both dentists and are accepting of the wizarding world and proud of her accomplishments.[1] In 1997, Hermione modified their memories so that they believed they were Wendell and Monica Wilkins and moved to Australia in order to protect them from Death Eaters.[2] After the Second Wizarding War ended, she found them and reversed the charm.

The Grangers are related by marriage to the wizarding Weasley, Prewett, Potter, Black, Delacour, and Johnson families.[3]

The surname Granger is derived from grange, a term for a barn or farm with buildings that store grain, thus 'granger' is a term for a farm bailiff. Also, "Granger" is a term for a member of the Grange Movement of the United States, which involved agricultural activism in the nineteenth century, possibly alluding to Hermione Granger's activism on behalf of house-elves.
