Commentary

Etymology

Eunice is the Latin form of the Greek name Ευνικη (Eunike) which meant "good victory" - from ευ (eu) "good" and νικη (nike) "victory" (Behind the Name).

Murray is a surname of Scottish and Irish origin and has several Gaelic derivations, including two that mean "a settlement by the sea" or "son of the sea man" (Internet Surname Database).

Notes

She would likely have been petitioning the International Confederation of Wizards Quidditch Committee and the International Association of Quidditch if she really wanted to have any substantial changes made to something as important as the magical specifications for the Golden Snitch - unless she was only making the statement to garner publicity or personal acclaim.
