Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter, it is the property of the brilliant J.K Rowling. This story is the product of her marvellous characters and world and my imagination.
Any constructive criticism or reviews are extremely welcome, I adore feedback of any kind. Enjoy the chapter. This chapter will give the full names of all the children the main characters in this story, along with the ages of both adults and children at the time of the Epilogue. It will also explain why I chose these names, as many of them have some significance in the Harry Potter universe. I hope it helps you get the names straight and know which children belong to which set of parents.
Epilogue: Family Trees
Hermione (34) and Bill (43) Weasley
Isabella Hope (12): The first name has no significance in the Harry Potter world. The middle name of Hope seemed appropriate considering that the end of the war gave hope to the wizarding world for a more peaceful society.
Edward Patrick (10) : His first name is a tribute to Hermione's deceased father, Edward Granger. The middle name is merely one I liked. It also struck me that Hermione may well be likely to pick more traditional names.
Anna Ginevra (10): Her first name is a tribute to Hermione's deceased mother, Anna Granger. Ginevra is obviously for Hermione's best female friend, Ginny Potter neé Weasley, who is also Bill's only sister.
Ariana Minerva (5): Ariana was the name of Dumbledore's little sister, who died in an accident when she was younger. For the full story read Deathly Hallows. Minerva is obviously a tribute to the deceased transfiguration professor, who was a member of the Order and Hermione's favourite teacher, as well as her Head of House.
Harry (34) and Ginny (33) Potter
James Sirius (13): Pretty obvious really, named for Harry's father James and his godfather Sirius. (In line with Deathly Hallows epilogue)
Albus Severus (10): Also obvious, after the two people who fought tirelessly against Voldemort, risking their lives time and time again; Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. (Also in line with Deathly Hallows epilogue).
Lily Mia (5): The first name is for Harry's mother Lily. The second name, Mia, is in recognition of Hermione and is the name James Sirius and Albus Severus called her when they were young and couldn't pronounce her name properly.
Gideon Remus (3): The first name is for Gideon Prewett, Molly Weasley's brother and Ginny's uncle, who died during the first war. The second name is for James and Sirius' other best friend and one of the three marauders (we don't count Peter since he is a traitor)
Remus (54) and Nymphadora 'Tonks' (41) Lupin
Teddy Harry (16): First name is for Tonks' father Ted Tonks and the second name is for the boy's godfather Harry Potter.
Natalia Andromeda (14): I used the first name since it is also the first name of the actress, Natalia Tena, who plays Tonks in the movies. Her second name is for Tonks' mother, Andromeda Tonks.
Callie Rose (10): No significance in the Harry Potter universe, I just wanted them to have another child and liked the two names.
Sirius (54) and Madeline (48) Black
Orion Regulus (12): First name is Sirius' middle name and also to do with stars and constellations, which is a theme in the family. His second name is after Sirius' younger brother Regulus, who turned against Voldemort and died for it.
Cassie Sofia (12): Cassie is a version of Cassiopeia, which is a constellation (again with the Black family theme). Sofia has no significance to the Harry Potter world but just seemed like the sort of name Sirius would use.
Blaise (34) and Luna (33) Zabini
Evanna Maria (9): Her first name is the first name of the actress who plays Luna in the films, Evanna Lynch. The second name is for Blaise's mother Maria.
Gabriel Isaac (7): No significance to the Harry Potter world. I believe that any children of Luna Lovegood would have rather ethereal names and these two were my favourite boys names to suit that sort of idea.
Ron (34) and Verity (36) Weasley
Ethan Fabien (11): First name has no significance. Second name is for Fabien Prewett, Molly Weasley's other brother and Ron's uncle, who was killed in the first war.
Fred (36) and Angelina (36) Weasley
Victoria Olivia (8): Victoria is a play on victory and she was named such as a celebration for their victory in the war. Olivia has no significance in the Harry Potter universe.
Arthur Percival (8): He is named for his paternal grandfather Arthur Weasley and his second name is for Percival (Percy) Weasley, the only Weasley to die during the Final Battle.
George (36) and Katie (35) Weasley
Molly Lucy (8): She is named for her paternal grandmother Molly Weasley. Her second name has no significance in the Harry Potter universe.
Brendan Joshua (8): Brendan is for the actor who plays Mad-Eye Moody in the films (Brendan Gleeson) ,because I wanted to honour Mad-Eye somehow, but I also just liked the name. Joshua has no significance in the Harry Potter universe.
Neville (34) and Hannah (34) Longbottom
Daniel Frank (11): Daniel has no significance in the Harry Potter universe. Frank is after Neville's incapacitated father Frank Longbottom, an auror tortured into insanity by Bellatrix Lestrange and others.
Daisy Alice (11): Daisy is just a name I like and I thought it would be nice to give both children first names beginning with the same letter. Alice is after Neville's incapacitated mother Alice Longbottom, who was tortured into insanity by Bellatrix Lestrange and others.
Draco (34) and Astoria (32) Malfoy
Scorpius Draco (9): His first name I chose to be the same as in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows. His second name is his father's first name, just as Draco's middle name was Lucius.
Narcissa Daphne (6): Her first name is for Draco's mother, Narcissa Malfoy. Her middle name is for Astoria's older sister Daphne Greengrass, who is mentioned in the books to be the same year as Draco and the trio.
Kingsley Shacklebolt (52): Minister For Magic and married to his work.
Severus Snape (54): Still teaching at Hogwarts and terrifying children.
Charlie Weasley (41): Still working with dragons, though less of an active role given his age, and content to be a bachelor uncle.
Albus Dumbledore (132): Still the Headmaster of Hogwarts, though he's slowing down a bit.
Narcissa Malfoy (58): Never remarried after Lucius and is a 'lady who lunches,' along with helping look after her two grandchildren.
Maria Zabini (53): Lives with Blaise and Luna, helping to look after her two grandchildren.
Thank you to all who have reviewed throughout this story, it's been long going but I got to the end eventually, something that would have been difficult without all your encouraging reviews. See my user page for more stories, along with a list of future fics.
I will now be posting a Hermione/Severus story called 'Fighting The Darkness' that is a little darker than this and updates won't be as frequent, though chapters will be longer. If that doesn't suit you, I will also be posting a companion piece to this fic called 'Rebuilding', which will chronicle the life of Hermione, Bill and the rest of the surviving Order between the Final Battle and the 'Epilogue: 16 Years Later'. It will have things like engagements, weddings, births, Hogwarts and work, along with information on how couples like Neville/Hannah, Ron/Verity, Sirius/Madeline, Draco/Astoria, Fred/Angelina and George/Katie got together. This companion fic is now up on my page.
