J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter Was Named After His Grandfather

J.K.罗琳:哈利波特的名字来源于他的曾祖父

 While the Harry Potter book series ended in 2007 and the films concluded four years later in 2011 too, the Potter fan community has still found themselves on the receiving end of a steady stream of new content related to the Wizarding World. Whether it be the opening of Harry Potter theme parks, the release of the stage playHarry Potter and the Cursed Child, or even just random tweets from Potter creator, J.K. Rowling, a fair amount of new information and history from the franchise's unique magical world has been revealed over the past ten years since Rowling first finished the main book series.

虽然《哈利·波特》系列丛书已经在2007年完结,《哈利·波特》系列电影也在四年后的2011年结束,但迷们却没有与魔法世界断绝联系。无论是《哈利·波特》主题公园的开幕,舞台剧《哈利·波特与被诅咒的孩子》的上映,还是j·k·罗琳发布的推文,都透露给大家一些关于魔法世界的新信息

 

In her latest addition to the Pottermore website, Rowling offers some shocking new insight into the history of Harry's actual family tree. Rowling reveals that the family is actually descended from a 12th-century eccentric wizard named Linfred of Stinchcombe, who was originally given the nickname "The Potterer," which later became simply, Potter. But the biggest news came when Rowling revealed the name and history of Harry's paternal grandfather, Henry Potter... or Harry Potter, as he was most commonly known amongst friends and loved ones. This means that Henry's grandson, James Potter, later went on to name his only son after him, who would eventually become known as the most famous wizard in the world.

在Pottermore的最新一期报道里,罗琳宣布了一个令人震惊的新消息她说明了哈利真正的祖先。罗琳透露,实际上是12世纪一位被叫做“魔鬼库姆”的古怪巫师林弗雷德(Linfred of Stinchcombe)的后裔,他的绰号是“the Potter,后来就变成了“Potter。除此以外,罗琳还透露了哈利的祖父,亨利·波特,又叫哈利·波特的名字和出身,他在波特家族中很受尊重所以亨利的孙子,詹姆·波特,便以他的名字命名他的儿子—日后那个世界上最著名的巫师。

 

In addition to providing the eventual name for his great-grandson, Rowling reveals that Henry Potter was a great wizard in his own right. When serving on the Wizengamot from 1913 - 1921, Henry caused controversy in the magical community, when he publicly condemned Archer Evermonde, then Minister of Magic, for forbidding the magical community to help Muggles waging the First World War. And as it turns out, Henry's outspoken support of the Muggles was a big contributing reason as to why the Potters were excluded from the Sacred Twenty-Eight, a list of the 28 British families in the Wizarding community who lacked any and all Muggle relations in their ancestry, or who were known as "truly pure blood" in the Thirties.

除了他的曾孙沿用了他的名字,罗琳还,亨利·波特本身就是一个伟大的巫师。1913年至1921年在威森加摩服役期间,他曾公开谴责当时的魔法部长阿切尔·埃佛蒙德禁止魔法界帮助麻瓜发动第一次世界大战一事,在魔法界引起了轩然大波但是,由于亨利的直言不讳的支持麻瓜,导致了波特家族被排除在了28个纯血统的魔法界家族之外

 

But Henry's legacy in the Potter family lived on. His son, Fleamont, eventually went on to marry his wife, Euphemia, after becoming wildly successful in the potion industry, thanks to his creation of the Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion, which tripled the family gold. And after years of trying to have a child together, when it looked like all hope was lost,  the duo eventually gave birth to Harry's father, James. But while Fleamont and Euphemia lived long enough to witness James marry Lily Evans, a Muggle-born girl, they did not get to meet their grandson, Harry, when Dragon pox killed them both quickly, due to their "advanced age." So, like with most things Rowling has revealed about the history of the Wizarding World, the backstory of the Potter family is both tragic and heartwarming at times, but nonetheless shines some exciting new light on the history of one of the Wizarding Community's most famous and important families.

但亨利对波特家族的影响依然很大。他的儿子弗莱蒙特·波特尤菲米亚结婚魔药领域获得了巨大的成功,这要归功于他发明了速顺滑发剂,使家族的财富暴涨多年以后,两人生下了哈利的父亲詹姆。虽然弗莱蒙特和尤菲米娅很长寿甚至见证了詹姆莉莉的婚礼他们最终死于龙痘,没有见到他们的孙子哈利。就像很多魔法世界的故事一样,波特家族故事温馨,又有些悲情的成分。但总而言之作为魔法界最著名最重要的家族之一,波特家族的历史使我们对魔法世界又有了新的认识
