Honoria was a British witch and the spinster aunt of Albus Dumbledore. She was once engaged to a wizard who worked in the Improper Use of Magic Office, but broke off her engagement to him, claiming that he had a "hairy heart" (a wizarding expression for a person who is unfeeling). Rumour had it that her real reason for ending the engagement was catching her fiancé fondling some Horklumps.
Honoria is a feminine form of the late Roman name Honorius, meaning "honour". Some early saints and popes and one king held this name.
Behind the scenes
- It is unknown whether Honoria was the sister of Percival Dumbledore or his wife Kendra. Honoria was believed to more likely be Percival's sister, since the latter was a Muggle-born witch; however, the birth of two Muggle-born siblings, though rare, is possible, like in Colin and Dennis Creevey's case.
