Sometime prior to 1994, he started attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he was sorted into Hufflepuff house. In 1994, he played as the Keeper on the Hufflepuff Quidditch team.
The name "Herbert" is derived from the Germanic elements hari "army" and beraht "bright". The Normans introduced this name to England, where it replaced an Old English cognate Herebeorht. In the course of the Middle Ages it became rare, but it was revived in the 19th century.
