d'Eath, Lorcan Musicians

Lorcan d'Eath, copyright Lightmaker.(b. 1964)

Heartthrob singer, part vampire, nineteen weeks at number 1 with hit song 'Necks to You.'

It is unclear in canon what it means to be a part vampire. Is he in the process of being cured? Did the vampirization process get interrupted somehow for him? JKR's Wizard of the Month for November 2006 (JKR).

Lorcan="little fierce one" (Irish Gaelic).
d'Eath (also spelled D'Aeth or D'Ethe) = "Of Aeth" or Ethe (Belgium) or Eth (Nord, France). In Middle English, a nickname (Middle English deeth, Old English deao). Source: Surnames of the United Kingdom, A Concise Etymological Dictionary, 1912.

In literature, similar naming puns on the word death have been used by authors Dorothy Sayers ('Lord Peter Death Bredon Wimsey' in Murder Must Advertise), Patricia McKillip ('Deth' in The Riddle Master of Hed series) and Terry Pratchett ('Lord Edward d'Eath,' an assassin, in Men at Arms ). Thanks to 'domoor' and Deborah Hubbard for pointing this out!

Everard Hogwarts staffportrait, tapestry, sculpture
