For British usage, should he be called Bartemius Crouch Snr ("UK written abbreviation Snr, US written abbreviation Sr" from Cambridge Dictionary)? --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:26, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

Depends on which spelling is used in the british HP books as far I know. --Rodolphus (talk) 19:29, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
The books do not give titles to both of them, they are both called "Barty Crouch". The reader only knows the difference due to the VA (in the audio disks) and the description given by other characters at different times of the story.
If the books gave them an honorific title, then Harry would not have questioned "Bartemius Crouch" being on the Marauder's Map, as it would have said Bartemius Crouch Jr.". It's only the films that makes a distinction and ofc, this wiki makes the distinction for organisational reasons. --Sajuuk 19:36, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
Agreed - in searching through "Crouch" in the US version, there is never a title used, always "Crouch's son", the "young Crouch", etc... In the film, it's given as "Barty Crouch... junior" by Karkaroff during the trial. For our purposes here, I think it needs to be "Snr" and "Jr" to follow British convention, but I am hoping someone more knowledgeable (or better yet, British) can confirm that is correct. --Ironyak1 (talk) 20:06, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
How do the british film captions spell it? This is I think the only canon source left:--Rodolphus (talk) 20:10, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
Neither, the only reason Karkaroff said "... junior" is to make it clear to the viewer that he meant Crouch's son, not the adult and elderly Crouch. No honorifics are ever used in any media, they are only used here for distinguishing the two separate characters. --Sajuuk 20:28, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

I think Sirius should have his own section. Spinosaurus75]] Dinosaur Fan 23:14, July 17, 2016 (UTC)

Dark Wizzard

He used the Imperius Curse on Barty jr. should he be labled a dark wizzard for useing dark magic? Gopher dude 11 (talk) 22:01, December 1, 2016 (UTC)

Not necessarily. A Dark wizard is best defined as someone who routinely practices and/or actively studies the Dark Arts. There are plenty of wizards who have, on occasion, used Dark magic without being labeled as Dark wizards (perhaps, most notably, is Harry Potter himself, who is seen casting a Cruciatus Curse three times throughout the series -- at Bellatrix in Order of the Phoenix, at Snape in Half-Blood Prince, at Amycus Carrow in Deathly Hallows). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:07, December 1, 2016 (UTC)
