Nettles, Madam Z.

A longtime Death Eater (HBP20) stunned by Hermione early on during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (OP35). His son is Theodore Nott, a Slytherin in Harry’s year (JKR).

Nott, Theodore Slytherin

(b. circa 1980)

Slytherin, 1991 - 1998 (PS7, OP26)
Son of the Death Eater Nott, Theodore is described as "weedy-looking" (OP26) and “a clever loner who does not feel the need to join gangs, including Malfoy’s.” He can see thestrals (WEB LINKJKR).

Nott's name could have many different meanings: nothing (as in 'naught'), and binding (as in 'knot'). In Norse myth, Nott is the "personification of night, and the daughter of Narvi. Nott's chariot is pulled by the horse Hrimfaxi ('frost-maned') which covers the earth with dew early in the morning." (WEB LINKEM).

Nuttley, Orabella

(fl. 1750)

An unassuming and shy clerk at the Ministry of Magic who invented the Mending Charm. She used it to repair damage to the Coliseum in Rome when it was damaged at the end of a nighttime broom race, thereby avoiding a huge breah of the International Statute of Secrecy and earning herself the Order of Merlin, First Class (BoS3).
