Scott Ancrum was a wizard and Ravenclaw student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s.

Biography

Despite being Sorted into Ravenclaw, he did not excel in his studies, and has said that he would like to have the same job as Rubeus Hagrid. However, he thought Horace Slughorn was a good teacher, and learned to prepare a potion from him.[3]

Etymology

  • "Scott" is from an English and Scottish surname which meant "a Scotsman". The original meaning of the word Scot is debated, but it may mean "tattoo", so given because Scotsmen often had tattoos.
  • "Ancrum" is a Scottish name and is a habitational name from a place in Roxburghshire (Borders) called Ancrum, earlier Alncromb ‘bend in the river Ale’, from a word related to Welsh crwm ‘bent’, ‘curved’.
