Morrigan was a famous Irish pure-blood witch, notable for being an Animagus who could turn into a crow.[1] It is unknown whether or not she was a registered Animagus.

Morrigan was an ancestor of William Sayre, who nicknamed his daughter, Isolt, "Morrigan" due to her affinity for all things natural when she was young.[1]
