Tremlett is the surname of a Muggle family. They must have some distant magical ancestry,[1] however, as Donaghan Tremlett turned out to be a Muggle-born wizard.

Etymology

Tremlett is an English surname of Norman-French origin, derived from Les Trois Minettes, a village in Calvados, France that was apparently once the site of three mines.[2] Given Donaghan's musical profession, it may have been chosen in reference to tremolo (from the Italian, "shaking"), the rapid repetition of a single note or the alternation between multiple notes.[3]
