"I like Ludo. He was the one who got us such good tickets for the Cup. I did him a bit of a favor: His brother, Otto, got into a spot of trouble — a lawnmower with unnatural powers — I smoothed the whole thing over."
Arthur Weasley on Ludo Bagman[src]
Otto Bagman was a wizard and brother of Ludo Bagman. He got into trouble with a magical lawnmower, a Muggle artefact. Arthur Weasley helped him sort out the problem, and and as thanks, his brother Ludo provided the Weasley family with tickets to the 1994 Quidditch World Cup final.[2]


"Otto" is a later German form of Audo or Odo, originally a short form of various names beginning with the Germanic element od meaning "wealth, fortune".


Notes and references

  1. It's known that his father was a friend of Augustus Rookwood's; this seems to imply that Otto was, at the very least, not Muggle-born.
